Watermelon Seeds

 
Watermelon, Egusi (Citrullus colocynthis), packet of 10 seeds, organic
Watermelon, Egusi (Citrullus colocynthis), packet of 10 seeds, organic

Annual vine native to West Africa.  90 days.   Bearing small. roud to oblong fruits ranging in weight from 5 to 10 lbs, Egusi is filled with a bitter flesh but loaded with highly nutritious seeds.  Seed coat is not eaten, only the insides, very much like a sunflower seed, only bigger.  We planted this in a narrow space between a bed of astragalus and a bed of tomatoes, and found that the vines ran out and made fruits up to 40 feet away from the crown of the plant.  The seeds (endosperm, without the testa) contain 50% protein and 30% fat, making them an excellent food source.  Seeds used in a variety of ways--ground up and added to soup as a delicious thickener, roasted and eaten stright, soaked, fermented, boiled, ground up and fried as cakes, made into a butter, ground up and added to water to make an infant formula.
