Where I grow
I grow on the ground in warm and sunny regions all around the world, even though I'm native to Asia. You can find me on sprawling vines with large, green leaves, basking in the sun. I thrive in places with plenty of heat and water to quench my thirst. I don't ripen off the vine, so farmers can tell by my smell or color when I'm ready to pick.
After I'm picked
After I'm picked, I'm usually sliced open, revealing my juicy flesh. Some people prefer to chill me in the refrigerator for an extra refreshing treat. You might also find me as a star ingredient in fruit salads, where I add a burst of sweetness. Blending me into smoothies is another popular choice, creating a cool and tasty drink. Anyway you try me, I make a great snack on a hot day because I contain so much water.
