Good Eatin': Watermelon, the Fruit That's Really a Vegetable

"The watermelon is of the Cucurbitaceae (or Gourd) family. It's origin, Africa, was established by David Livingstone (noted missionary explorer), in the 1850's. He found great tracts of watermelon growing wild in the Kalahari desert of Africa. Cultivation by man dates back at least 4000 years to the Egyptians." -- from the website of the North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services.
