Scientists: Watermelon yields Viagra-like effects

LUBBOCK, Texas - A slice of cool, fresh watermelon is a juicy way to top off a Fourth of July cookout and one that researchers say has effects similar to Viagra — but don't necessarily expect it to keep the fireworks all night long.

...Todd Wehner, who studies watermelon breeding at North Carolina State University, said anyone taking Viagra shouldn't expect the same result from watermelon.

One would need to eat about six cups of watermelon...

"The problem you have when you eat a lot of watermelon is you tend to run to the bathroom more..."

I wonder if that applies to sandia española as well. What a way to "top off" the 4th. Always seems there is a "gotcha".

According to a news report I saw Tuesday evening, the chemical they found is (for now at least) only present in the rind. YUM

The TX plant boys are working at creating watermelons that produce it in the fruit's flesh.
