What happens when you pour molten aluminum into a watermelon

Here’s what I thought was going to happen when I saw molten aluminum get poured into a watermelon: it would explode, it would destroy the melon, it would eviscerate the flesh, it would burn everything in site, it would be stupid but it would be fun because watermelons are fun to destroy. But here’s what actually happened.


The molten aluminum snaked its way through the watermelon and found the seed patterns and open channels and basically casted a mini watermelon seed tree of itself. I guess I should have expected that! Since it’s not unlike when you pour molten aluminum inside an ant hill.

that’s a really ripe watermelon. I would love to find me one just like it but without metal in it.

Watermelons near me are all pink inside - no taste.
