Watermelon might be the all-American fruit, but it has a long history across the world. This juicy fruit dates all the way back to Egypt 5,000 years ago! There were even watermelons featured in Egyptian hieroglyphics. From there, watermelons made their way to China, Europe and eventually the United States. Today, Americans chomp down on watermelons more than any other melon. We've even garnered a world record for the heaviest watermelon ever grown – it was nearly 269 pounds and grown in Arkansas in 2005.
Break watermelon out of the fruit bowl by using it in these fun recipes. From smoothies to centerpieces, salsa to sailboats, watermelon adds a cool twist to any meal or snack.
