Watermelon: Water melon (Citrullus lanatus) is a plant species in the family Cucurbitaceae, a vine-like flowering plant originally from sub-Saharan Africa. It is cultivated for its fruit.
The subdivision of this species into two cultivars, watermelons and citron melons, originated with the erroneous synonymization of Citrullus lanatus & Nakai and Citrullus vulgaris Schrad. by L.H.Bailey in 1930. Molecular data including sequences from the original collection of Thunberg and other relevant type material, show that the sweet watermelon and the bitter wooly melon Citrullus lanatus Matsum. & Nakai are not closely related to each other.
Since 1930, thousands of papers have misapplied the name Citrullus lanatus Matsum & Nakai for the watermelon, and a proposal has therefore been submitted to conserve the name with this meaning.
