    Wild About Watermelons!

    According to Brownielocks today is National Watermelon Day!

    Watermelons ... a sweet, drippy, juicy way to learn! ;) So let's start out with some watermelon facts:

    Watermelon Facts:
    * Watermelons are more than 90% water. That's how it got its name!
    * For that reason, in ancient times travelers used them as a source of transportable water.
    * They probably originated in Africa, but are now grown around the world.
    * They are part of the gourd family.
    * They grow on a vine and must be replanted yearly.
    * Most people consider them to be a fruit, but horticulturists consider them a vegetable.
    * They vary in size and shape. The Japanese recently even developed a SQUARE watermelon!
    * The outside of the watermelon is the rind.
    * Inside the watermelon you'll find the flesh (the stuff you eat), and seeds.
    * Watermelons can be different colors inside and out, as well as the amount of seeds that they contain.
    * Most watermelons weigh from 5 - 40 pounds, but some get as large as 100 pounds.
    * The 1996 Guiness Book of Records lists the largest watermelon as being 262 pounds!
    * The seeds (like the pumpkin's seeds) can also be roasted and eaten.
    * Some people use the watermelon rind for making preserves, pickles, or relish.
    * That makes the whole watermelon edible!
