The first garden strawberry was grown in Brittany, France during the late 18th century. Prior to this, wild strawberries and cultivated strawberry varieties from wild strawberry species were the common source of the fruit. The strawberry fruit was mentioned in ancient Roman literature in reference to its medicinal use. The French began taking the strawberry from the forest to their gardens for harvest in the 1300s. Charles V, France's king from 1364 to 1380, had 1,200 strawberry plants in his royal garden. In the early 1400s western European monks were using the wild strawberry in their illuminated manuscripts. The strawberry is found in Italian, Flemish, German art, and English miniatures. The entire strawberry plant was used to treat depressive illnesses.

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.
