"When one has tasted Watermelon, he knows what the angels eat."- Mark Twain
Native to Asia, Melons come in many varieties, differing in taste, color, and skin texture. Watermelon is classified as a gourd while most other melons fall into the category of musk melon. Most melon varieties are very good sources of vitamin C, and those with orange or red flesh are also rich sources of vitamin A.
