National Watermelon Day

WatermelonDayNational Watermelon Day is celebrated on August 3rd of each year.

Watermelon is a vine-like flowering plant originally from southern Africa. The watermelon fruit, loosely considered a type of melon – although not in the genus Cucumis – has a smooth exterior rind (green, yellow and sometimes white) and a juicy, sweet interior flesh (usually pink, but sometimes orange, yellow, red and sometimes green if not ripe). It is also commonly used to make a variety of salads, most notably fruit salad.
