Project Zomboid Now Early Access on STEAM
Watermelon chunks are a perishable food item.
Watermelon chunks can be eaten, providing the player with some positive effects, however these will become negative the longer it's left to perish.
Smashing a watermelon instead of slicing it provides less thirst with the resulting pieces than the regular watermelon. Using a bladed weapon to cut the watermelon is a much more efficient use of the watermelon.
Watermelon chunks are a cooking ingredient.
Watermelon chunks do not spawn naturally and can only be obtained through crafting.
