日本挖到兩千一百年前的西瓜 果肉可見
【2007/06/03 08:57 報導 】
日本挖到估計埋在地底已經有兩千一百年的西瓜!因為地下接近真空狀態,西瓜保存得很好,上面還留有果肉。
這個不完整的西瓜是在關西的(森山)出土,考古學家用活性碳分析出它的年份;這可能是到目前為止,地底挖出來還帶有果肉的西瓜中年代最久的,在它之前,最古老的西瓜是在中國大陸出土,估計有一千六百多年歷史。
過去日本考古學家經常會挖到古時候埋在地下的西瓜籽,帶有果肉的西瓜則非常罕見。

By the 10th century AD, watermelons were being cultivated in China, which is today the world's single largest watermelon producer. By the 13th century, Moorish invaders had introduced the fruit to Europe; and, according to John Mariani's The Dictionary of American Food and Drink, "watermelon" made its first appearance in an English dictionary in 1615.

這....是BUG嗎
