Melons (Latin: Maximus Melonus) are a type of fruit that grows in the Caribbean, on islands such as Jamaica and Antigua. Melons are about 30cm in diameter, roughly spherical and weigh approximately 2.5kg.
A melon is a largish fruit not unlike a unripe watermelon. Without melons this world might be as significant as it is today. Melons can be Honeydew, Cantaloupe, Galia or possibly even simultaneous. Melons tend to taste sweet, providing the skin is left unadulterated. Melons are also known to suddenly disappear.
edit The Significance of Melons
Where would we be today if that student hadn't thrown a melon at George Bush in his speech to the nation? Imagine what would have happened if Germany when it attempted to drop a nuclear bomb on Liverpool in early 1945 had actually put their nuclear bomb prototype in the aircraft instead of a melon by mistake. Well actually it's Liverpool, so it's unfortunate that the Germans fouled up.
Determining the exact age of the melon is an uncertain business, given that most melons resemble other fruits. However, with the use of cunning technology, it has been determined that the melon is probably 300-400 million years old. Not a great deal is known about the original melons, though they would have been half the size of modern equivalents.
Melons have been cultivated for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to, eating, bowling and as weapons. The taste is reminiscent of a sort of sweetened watermelon taste with extra sweetness and less redness. Without melons, diet would collapse.
