Watermelon is widely grown in tropical and sub-tropical climates, and is an especially popular seasonal fruit in the southern United States. The plant has trailing vines and very large fruit (commonly up to half a metre long) with smooth, thick, green skin, and sometimes darker green stripes. The flesh is sweet, and pink, red or yellow in color. Watermelon may uncommonly induce symptoms of food allergy in sensitised individuals. Allergic reactions include oral allergy syndrome or oropharyngeal symptoms (itching and/or swelling of the lips, tongue, or throat), urticaria, dermatitis, angioedema, and dyspnoea Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB.
