[Sca-cooks] Newbie Question about Watermelon

I am new to the SCA and read a great but fairly general article for beginners that broke fruits and vegetables down into New World and Old World foods, but I didn't see watermelon on the list.  The article indicated that cantalope (musk melons) and honeydew were Old World.  This article was from the SCA websites.  Does anyone know the status and/or history of  watermelon, or how it would have been served?  I am assuming that it was seasonable and was probably limited to warmer climates.
