What’s the Japanese word for watermelon?

As Jason, Scarlett, Kristen and I wandered around Balboa Park yesterday marveling at the architecture and a super-awesome fig tree, we overheard a young man (age = approx. 5) ask this of his parents.  Not sure why. I’m sure it was totally taken out of context. And we weren’t close enough to hear if his parents even dignified such a beautiful question with an appropriate answer. A kid that asks a question like that is bound to be the next Oprah.

Oh, the answer is Suika.
