-Junior Editors Quiz on- FOOD QUESTION: What country first grew watermelons? ANSWER: The watermelon is a fruit that grows on a long vine. It is related to the pumpkin, squash, muskmelon and cucumber. And it is called watermelon for a very good reason. It is 93 per cent water. Watermelon has very little food value, but it has a delicious taste. Watermelons were first grown in Africa and spread in early times to southern Asia. Eventually it was brought to the United States, which is now the chief source of the fruit. Water* melons are grown in the deep, sandy soil of Georgia, Florida, Texas, South Carolina and Alabama. FOR YOU TO DO: Why not have a watermelon party? Have enough watermelons to give each guest one piece and have one piece letf over. Before you begin eating, have each guest guess the number of seeds in his piece. After eating, count the seeds. Whoever comes closest to the right number of seeds in his portion wins the other piece of melon. (Jay Gourley of Sharon, S. C, wins $10 for this question. Mail your question on a postcard to Violet Moore Higgins, AP News- features, in care of this newspaper. Mrs. Higgins will make the final selection if duplicate questions are received.)
