Note: There are certain terms used in Puerto Rico that are not common in other Spanish speaking places. Among those terms used are the flavors China, which in most Spanish speaking locales is referred to as Naranja, and Melón, whose correct name is Sandía. The Puertorrican "china" is much sweeter than the "naranja" customarily eaten or drunk elsewhere and which could even be much bitter in taste; whereas "Melón" is an Anglicism, the word comes from the English "watermelon".
