Watermelon like fruits

Anonymous added on July 21, 2011 | Answered

We moved onto this property a few months ago and have recently found some watermelons growing. A neighbor told us that these melons are not edible because they will make you sick. The melons seem to be almost mature and they are the size of a large cantaloupes. They are mostly very light in color with only a little darker green colorings. Please advise us of your opinion.

I would check with your local extension service. We would not feel comfortable making a call on that in case it was a local variety that was not familiar to us. You can call you local extension service and they will be happy to let you know if they are safe to eat or not.
