The melons of Khwarizm
#mohamed_ahmed_alsowaidi_ibn_battota
(Khwarizm, 1335) (Products / People)
(Bukhara / Isfahan / India / China / al-Maghrib)
Account of the melons of Khwarizm. The melons of Khwarizm have no equal in any country of the world, East or West, except it may be the melons of Bukhara, and next to them are the melons of Isfahan. Their rind is green, and the flesh is red, of extreme sweetness and firm texture. A remarkable thing is that they are cut into strips, dried in the sun, and packed in reed baskets, as is done in our country with dried figs and Malaga figs. They are exported from Khwarizm to the remotest parts of India and China, and of all the dried fruits there are none which excel them in sweetness. (16) During my stay at Dihli in India, whenever a party of travellers arrived, I used to send someone to buy sliced melon for me from them. The king of India, too, when any of it was brought to him, used to send it to me, knowing as he did my fondness for it. It was his way to give pleasure to the foreigners by sending to them the fruit of their own countries, and he used to give special attention to learning their desires and supplying them accordingly.
