National Watermelon Day is August 3. It's the perfect time to celebrate this quintessential summer fruit.

Every food has its trade association, and watermelon's champion is The National Watermelon Promotion Board, which welcomes watermelon lovers with links to watermelon recipes, fun facts, and cute carving ideas. And don't miss the What About Watermelon? blog.
