when I was about 5 my aunt was pregnant and she told me that she swallowed a watermelon seed and it was growing inside of her. and I was so scared it would take me like hours to finish a watermelon to make sure I got all the seeds out.

When I was younger, my parents always told me never to eat watermelon seeds, or I'll have a watermelon grow in my stomach. Even as I was about fifteen years old, I would always get scared if I accidentally swallowed a seed, and I would never drink water after it thinking that it'll help the watermelon get planted. Silly.

I was always told that if you eat the seeds out of watermelon that baby watermelons would grow in your stomach. Now I can't stand the site of it even though I know this is not true!!!

Dad used to say that if I swallowed a watermelon seed, a plant would grow out of my ear. I thought about it for a while and came to the conclusion that it could work because my earwax would be the perfect substitute for soil.

When I was younger, I was riding in a car with my grandparents. The ride was going to be long so they gave me an apple to eat. After I was finished with it I got bored and started picking the seeds out of the core. I placed the seeds on the seat next to me.

Well, then we went over a speedbump and it looked like the appleseeds were jumping. I screamed bloody murder because I thought they were mad at me for taking them out of the apple. O_o

When I was little my brother would tell me that if I ate a watermelon seed a watermelon tree would grow in my stomach and I would die. One day my sister was eating a piece of watermelon and I flipped out and started crying.

when i was 5 yrs old i accidentlly ate a water-melon seed. i was scared, i asked my mom what would happen if i ate a water-melon seed(i didn't tell her that i did ate it).my mom told me that the seed would be planted in my stomach and a water-melon tree would start growing and it will give fruits which would hang out from my ears,nose,mouth and my belly button and soon i would turn into a tree.i started panicking and i tried to vomit so that the seed comes out but it did not. then later the whole day i tried to avoid drinking water cause if water falls on the seed it would grow faster. and i ate a lot of food so that the seed would fall under the food and don't grow.then for sometime i checked my mouth to see if any plant was coming through there...i actually kept on believing it till i was 11 yrs old...

my grandmother told me how eating watermelon seeds would cause a vine to grow out your ears (which i naturally believed and avoided seeds with all my might). well, my brother and i took horseback riding lessons at a nearby stable and one day he brought along pomegranites to feed them after our ride. unsure what a pomegranite was but trusting my older brother, i began feeding it to my horse. suddenly i noticed it was filled with seeds and i watched horrified as the horse gobbled down the seed filled fruit. i was sure i'd harmed the horse causing a vine to grow out it's ears!! my brother doubled over laughing! i was relieved the following week to see the horse was unharmed and anxious for another taste.

I honestly believed untill I was 13ish that if you swallowed a watermelon seed it would plant its self into your stomache, grow into a huge melon and make you explode. -and there was nothing any doctor could do about it.

My brother hated the seeds in green peppers. So, to make sure I didn't let any seeds make there way into a salad, he told me they were poisonous and that eating even one would kill you. Sadly, I very cautiously removed all seeds from green peppers until I was about 12!

I thought the caraway seeds in my great aunt's rye bread were mouse droppings, and there was no way I was going to eat that bread.
I also thought Sen-Sen, breath mints?, was really Sin-Sin, and I thought the Methodist Church which I attended should get on the ball and get rid of it as fast as possible.

i heard just like everybody else that if you eat seeds then a watermelon would grow inside of you. but whenever i ate the seeds nothing happened and, needless to say, i was very dissapointed.

my uncle told me when I was eating a watermelon seed that my aunt was pregnant because she accidentally swallowed a watermelon seed. I continued to pick all of the seeds out of my watermelon, turning it into a big pile of mush, until atleast 6th grade when I had took Human Growth and Development.

When I was a little girl I was eating a slice of watermelon and accidentally swolled a seed. My grandmother told me that the seed would grow into a watermelon inside my stomach. I was horrified. I thought when the watermelon grew I would explode. I cried and cried because I thought I was going to die!

I used to believe that if you ate tomatoes, the pips would stick in your appendix and then you would get appendicitis and have to have an operation.

My grandmother told me when I was about 7 or 8 that if you swallowed the watermelon seeds and you drank too much water the seeds would grow and you'd get this enormous belly. I believed her! She convinced me by showing me all the beer bellys at the lake where we water-skied. There were plenty of them and I thought for the longest time it was because they swallowed the watermelon seeds. Pitiful! ha ha ha
