The Egyptians were the first to harvest watermelon, but 5000 years later, Americans have claimed this fruit as their own. It has become the fruit of American summertime, and for good reason. While it is a cousin of the cucumber, its sweet taste appeals to young and old.

That makes it nature's own Gatorade!
