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.
