My mom is loving watermelon - Her nonna ( my great-grandmother, Maria Terelli) used to say: "Frutta meravigliosa- mangia, beve e lavi tu faccia!" which means "What a wonderful fruit, eat, drink and wash your face." But what do you call it in Genovese? Or in Napolitano ? Dialetti pui diversi, Cocomero or anguira? Non lo so? Any paisani out there?

And check out the square watermelon developed in Italia!
