PEACH FIT,,,,,,,, you sir, have not been far enough around the watermelon. Lots of animals and birds eat Poke Berries . You just can't crush and eat the seed. Animals eat the seed whole and scour them out and that is the way the plant is propagated. I don't eat the berries, but I cook them and make an extract that I take to avoid arthritis. A local freezes them and eats them whole all year 'round.
What shows that you are a novice on the subject is that the leaves have to be cooked several times and the water poured off. Other-wise you will spend the day on the potty. Guess you don't know that folks eat them with scrambled eggs.
I'm roughing you up because of your all knowing tone. Most on EC are pretty smart folk and don't need to be talked down to.
