A native of Africa, watermelon was supposedly a source of water for thirsty traders who began to sell the seeds in cities along the Mediterranean trade routes.

With the consumption of around 3 billion pounds annually, it’s no surprise that the watermelon is considered one of America’s favorite fruits. Available May thru September, yellow watermelon is a perfect picnic snack on a hot summer day, chilled and cut into wedges, bars, or cubes, and added to salads, or purée or juice for spritzers or aguas frescas.
