Watermelons. Pile of watermelons, Citrulus lanatus. The sweet juicy pulp of these fruit are eaten fresh as watermelons cannot be stored for more than 2-3 weeks. Each fruit weighs about 9 kilogrammes and is comprised of 93% water, making consumption of them a valuable alternative to drinking water. The oil can be extracted from the seeds to be used in cooking and lighting; the remainder of the seed can be used as fodder for livestock. Watermelons are grown around the world in tropical and subtropical regions.
