n.b Another of my experiments.

A couple of years ago in Egypt I purchased a watermelon from a street side vendor.

As anyone knows who has eaten a watermelon there is normally a lot of seed inside so I dried some in the sun and brought them home, this is the result.

It tasted as good as it looks and as good as its parent so was well worth the effort.
