North Carolina Watermelon Association

The North Carolina Watermelon Association was established in 1975 as the N. C. Watermelon Growers and Distributors Association. Modernized in 1982 with the present name, NCWA is the North Carolina Chapter of the National Watermelon Association, which also contains organizations from Maryland-Delaware, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi. NCWA is made up of associates from both inside and outside of North Carolina. An annual meeting of associates is held yearly in March where, with a traditional parade, a state queen is preferred to represent the association. During the summer months the queen makes appearances at festivals, parades, grand openings, state market promotions, on television and radio. The purpose of the association is to promote the top interest of the watermelon industry from production to consumption. The watermelon is of the Cucurbitaceous (or Gourd) family. Its origin, Africa, was established by David Livingstone (noted missionary surveyor), in the 1850's. He found great areas of watermelon growing barren in the Kalahari Desert of Africa. Agriculture by man dates back at least 4000 years to the Egyptians. The state organization together with the NCDA is continuously seeking improvements in the growing, grading, handling, transportation, sale and distribution of watermelon.
