Watermelons or pots (Citrullus lanatus, cucumber-cucumber or Cucurbitaceae) are vines derived from the half-desert region of southern Africa. This plant is still allied to the gourds. Fragrances are usually harvested for fresh or juiced fruits.
Like members of other cucumber-cucumber tribes, this plant habitus propagates but it can not form an adventitious root and can not climb. The reach of the propagation can reach a dozen meters.
The leaves are squiggly on the edges. The flowers are perfect, yellow, small (3cm in diameter).
Watermelon fruit has a hard skin, dark green or light green with dark green rows. Depending on the cultivars, the flesh is watery red or yellow.
This plant is quite resistant to drought, especially when it has entered the formation of fruit.
