Watermelon is member of the cucurbit family (Cucurbitaceae). Watermelon is served as slices, as chunks, as juice, pickled rind, glace candy etc. The watermelon fruit contains 93% water with small amount of protein, fat, minerals, and vitamins.
Watermelon fruit will keep two to three weeks after harvest if they are stored properly at 10-150C and 90% humidity.
