Рождённые ползать

Страница : 2
В 1928 году по просьбе известного арбузоведа К. Пангало из Индии привезли семена дикого арбузика. Посеяли в Ленинграде. Выросло растение, напоминающее и арбуз и дыню одновременно.
Листья почти не вырезаны. Корни короче. Плоды мельче. Все признаки выходца из сырых лесов.
А плоды сладкие, круглые, с рыхлой, водянистой мякотью. Пангало решил, что этот дикарь – пращур современных арбузов. Древнейшая форма. А раз так, то, может быть, центр происхождения наших любимых полосатиков не пустыня Калахари, а джунгли Индии?
Вполне вероятно, что, зародившись в индийских джунглях, арбузы двинулись на запад, проследовали через Аравию, Египет и спустились на юг до пустыни Калахари. Это тем более правдоподобно, что в глухом уголке Средней Азии на примитивных бахчах однажды нашли местный сорт арбузов, очень похожий на калахарские.
Трудно представить себе, каким образом земледельцы добыли в незапамятные времена арбузы из пустыни Калахари, когда там местные жители разведением этих растений не занимались. В случае нужды они отправлялись на природные бахчи.
Чтобы не взять горький плод, накалывали топориком и пробовали на вкус. Дома ели сами и кормили скотину и даже собак. Однако твердо заявить, что родина арбузов Индия, все же нельзя. Калахарские арбузы слишком мало изучены. Со времен Ливингстона почти никто ими не занимался. Наши ботаники и рады бы заняться, но доступ в Калахари был для них закрыт.
А перед войной пронеслась тревожная весть: англичане разрабатывают проект орошения этой огромной пустыни водами реки Замбези. Если так, зарослям арбузов грозит гибель. И прощай мечта об их изучении.
Тайна происхождения будет потеряна навсегда, потому что обводнения пустынные сухолюбы не перенесут. Даже если устроить заповедник и обнести его забором, уровень грунтовых вод поднимется, и место арбузиков займет бурьян. Но тут началась война, и проект так и не привели в исполнение.
В пустынях Африки из тыквенных не одни арбузы. Рядом с ними вьются по кустам или стелются по песку тонкие стебли кукумиса Гукера. Стебли двухметровые, закутанные в пушистый покров из белых волосков. Плодики коричневые, полосатые, с куриное яйцо. С прозрачной, как желе, чуть кисловатой мякотью и огуречным запахом.
С виду похожи на малосольные огурцы. Когда морозы прихватят зеленые плети и листья и стебли повиснут, чернея, плодики не портятся. Путешественники едят их с большим удовольствием, несмотря на колючки.
