Watermelons

Watermelon (Citrullus vulgaris). A large oblong or roundish melon with a hard green rind and sweet watery red or occasionally yellowish pulp.

Starting today, I will begin a series of photographs on the watermelon fruit. This fruit is very popular during the dry season in Panama, due to its watery nature and sweet flavor.  Expect more watermelon photographs during the week.

Good Day!

  1. Watermelons were a favorite summer fruit when I was growing up. They grow luscious ones just north of me. I have one photo showing my grandfather and some aunts and uncles in my grandparents’ back yard, all bent over with a slice of melon in their hands — dripping those juices.

    1. Lately, we’re having generous portions of watermelons for breakfast. A nice and juicy way to start these steaming, dry and lazy summer days. Do you grow watermelons where you live?

      1. The best Texas melons come from Hempstead, which is about ninety miles north of me. Their soil apparently is perfect. Hempstead for watermelon, the trans-Pecos for cantaloupe, and anywhere in Texas for barbeque!
