you know those facts where we decide that we’ve been lied to our entire lives?
well, this is going to be another one of those moments peeps 😅
#tdil that watermelon is the state vegetable of oklahoma 🍉
yep … i just called watermelon a vegetable 😳 (this is where the “we’ve all been lied to” bit comes in 😅). turns out that watermelon is only loosely related to melons … they’re actually more closely related to cucumbers 🥒
for that reason, the kind folk of oklahoma have officially named watermelon a vegetable 😊 (it’s worth noting that watermelon is still considered by most to be a fruit 👍🏻)
anyway, being the over-achiever that watermelon is, it didn’t settle for just being declared a vegetable … it went whole hog and became their official state vegetable! 😱
apparently, when the proposal for the bill was put forward in 2007, naming watermelon the state vegetable was actually a pretty landslide victory 😂 with 78 votes to 19!
erm, there isn’t much more to say on this if i’m honest 😅 i mean, it’s a fact about watermelon being a state veggie … it’s pretty much in the title 😂
ooh! if you’re wondering, the state fruit of oklahoma is the strawberry 🍓 … that’s a bonus fact for you 😁
right, i’m going to stop rambling and go to bed 😴
much love 😏 #tdil
other than a very specific pub quiz, i’m not really sure when this will be of any use 🙈 if you feel like reading something actually useful, take a gander over ->here<-
