Watermelon is a Fruit Food item from the Reign of Giants DLC. It can be harvested from a Farm with an 11% percent chance of being grown from Seeds. It can be used as an ingredient in several Crock Pot recipes, particularly Melonsicles. Feeding a Watermelon to a Bird in a Birdcage will produce 1–2 Watermelon Seeds. When eaten, it will also decrease the perceived temperature by 40 degrees for 5 seconds. 

It may also be combined with Twigs to make a Fashion Melon, which will provide protection for the player against Overheating.

Grilled Watermelon is a Fruit Food item made by Cooking a Watermelon on a CampfireFire Pit, or Star. It restores slightly more Sanity than its raw version but heals slightly less. It can still be used as an ingredient in several Crock Pot recipes, but cannot be used to make Melonsicles or craft the Fashion Melon.

Shipwrecked icon Shipwrecked Edit

Watermelons are also included in the Shipwrecked DLC, where they can be acquired through farming. It is possible to craft Fashion Melons or cook Melonsicles.
