It's gluten free: Watermelon is gluten free. Just don't cut the melon with your bread knife and cutting board!

Should be fine: Celiac patients need to avoid the grains -- wheat, barley, rye etc. Watermelon is not a problem for patients with celiac disease.

Yes: there is no gluten in watermelon, so watermelon is good for celiac patients.
