Watermelon is scientifically classified as Citrullus Lanatus and is a member of the cucurbitaceae family. It’s related to cucumbers, pumpkins, gourds and squash. They are packed with some of the best antioxidants in nature. Watermelons are rich with healthy nutrients such as vitamin A (including beta-carotene), vitamin C, potassium, lycopene, and magnesium. They are good for cardiovascular diseases, some cancers, Alzheimer’s disease, and diabetes too. What’s more, they are low in calories and very nutritious. I love watermelons, they’re so juicy and sweet and delicious. They are especially nice to eat on hot weathers. One of the pleasures of a warm sunny summer day is to be able to enjoy a slice of watermelon. It can also be a perfect health drink because it is 92% water, and doesn’t contain any fat or cholesterol. Furthermore, it fills you up fast because of its water content.

Just be careful to buy the “right” watermelon. Always choose one that is symmetrical and firm without any bruises. Turn it over and you will see a yellow colour on one side which tellyyou that it was rested on the ground while ripening under the sun, so it’s sweeter and juicer. You can also slap it, and if it sounds hollow, then it’s ripe and tasty.
