Watermelons are flowering plants originally from Africa.
They are grown for their edible fruit which is
a special kind of berry,
botanically called pepo.
Considerable breeding effort
has been put into disease resistant varieties
and into developing a seedless strain.
Originally annually spawning,
many cultivars produce now
mature fruit within approximately 100 days
