Why is watermelon written in Hiragana, whereas melon is written in katakana?
I've only taken Japanese for a year, so I barely know anything. My friend asked me what "melon" in japanese was, and since I immediately thought of suika for watermelon, I assumed some part of "suika" would mean melon. I was suprised tough to see that "meron" was the word melon in japanese. Does this mean the word "melon" came to the japanese after the word "watermelon" then?
