The fruit looks like watermelon, but the leaves are different from the ones I've seen.

Casaba melons are more likely, but I'm not a melon maven.

@oristarA,
I don't see how the identification of a melon has anything to do with intelligence. Am I missing something?

Supposed that you like to travel and now you come to a beautiful, vast wilderness. Excited yet thirsty, you look around and find the lot of these "Casaba melons." What will you do? A scrutiny of the environment confirms you that no one grows these melons. Mother Nature does. Will you think it is a gift bestowed upon you by God? Will you pick up one of the melons to appreciate? Will you carefully cut one of them to check out whether it is safe to eat?

Intelligence is what you do when you don't know what to do.

Good guess and impressive.
But continuous exertion may be required.

Interesting and impressive.

Further effort is encouraged, however.

I can do everything you suggest without having any idea what kind of melon I find. I still don't see the connection.

@oristarA,
You're the one who's challenged, not anyone else.

You're talking bollocks about intelligence.

@izzythepush,
she gets an idea from somewhere and will rarely admit her misunderstandings.

I learned about coyote melons from the Navajo, who would dry and boil the perennial melon ROOT for several uses, including as a potato substitute (Although the massive root is bitter until very dry.
The fruits fairly inedible because its bitter but the seeds can be toasted , salted and eaten like pumpkin seeds.
ya dont have to be a genius to know about m, just listen to the navajo ladies.

The fact will tell.

It's too early to reveal the answer. I tell you, honestly, to keep making your effort.

If that is truly about intelligence, will you apologize, izzy?

You've chickened out?

It is my formal statement: Intelligence is closely involved in this issue.
