Watermelon

(Citrullus lanatus)

a large spherical fruit, with flattened ends. Its green skin, which may be more or less dark, depending on the variety, is smooth, very thick and hard. The pulp is red and has a porous texture, is very juicy and is nearly always very sweet, and contains many black, brown or white seeds. However, seedless varieties have been cultivated and marketed for some years.
