The watermelon is believed to have originated in southern Africa, where it is found growing wild. The watermelon reaches maximum genetic diversity there, with sweet, bland and bitter forms. There is evidence of watermelons cultivation in the Nile Valley that has been found from the second millennium BC onward. Watermelon seeds have been found at Twelfth Dynasty sites and in the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun. Watermelon is also mentioned in the Bible as a food eaten by the ancient Israelites while they were in bondage in Egypt. Watermelon rinds are edible, but most people avoid eating them due to their unappealing flavor. The rind can be stir fried, stewed or pickled, which is sometimes eaten in the Southern United States. The Oklahoma State Senate passed a bill in 2007 declaring watermelon as the official state vegetable, with some controversy about whether it is a vegetable or a fruit.
