overview

  History
David Livingstone, an explorer of Africa, described watermelon as abundant in the kalahari desert, where it is believed to have originated. There, the ancestral melon grows wild and is known as the Tsamma melon
(Citrullus lanatus var citroides)


  Uses

Watermelon seeds

are rich in fat and protein, and are widely eaten as a snack, added to other dishes, or used as an oilseed. Specialized varieties are grown which have little watery flesh but concentrate their energy into seed production. In China watermelon seeds are one of the most common snack foods, popular especially with women, competing with sunflower seeds, and sold roasted and seasoned. In West Africa, they are pressed for oil, and are popular in egusi soup and other dishes.


  Growth Habits
Watermelons can be grown on well-drained sandy to sandy loam, medium black soils rich in organic matter. Alluvial soil along the river beds is also good for production of watermelons. A pH range of 6.0-7.0 is considered as optimum. It is a trailing annual vine with stems 15 m or more in length and branched tendrils having yellow flowers bearing globular to oblong fruits loght green to almost black and either solid or with pale green colour or marbled. striped.

Watermelon is a warm season crop grown mainly in sub-tropical and hot-arid regions.
  The crop requires dry weather with abundant sunshine for quality fruit production.
 
Watermelons are susceptible to light frost and are provided with partial protection if grown during winter months.
 
Temperature range of 24-27° C is considered as optimum for the growth of the vines.
  Cool nights and warm days are ideal for accumulation of sugars in the fruits.
  The seed germinates best when temperatures are higher than 20° C.
 
High humidity at the time of vegetative growth renders the crop susceptible to various fungal diseases.
