Nothing screams summer like biting into a juicy, fragrant slice of sweet watermelon. Even better, its high-water content keeps your body hydrated during scorching temperatures. No longer just a food for picnics and BBQ’s, watermelon is a surprising yet sophisticated addition to salads, salsas, and soups. Too much watermelon around? Put it in the blender, strain it through a tightly woven sieve and enjoy fresh watermelon juice—or freeze it for later!

Let’s talk watermelons

    Shopping for Watermelons

    Apply these three rules to pick the perfect watermelon: ensure no bruises, dents, or cuts; it should be heavy for its size; and it should have a yellowish spot to indicate it sat on the ground while ripening. If the watermelon is cold when purchased, keep it cold; otherwise, leave at room temperature, and wash the rind before cutting. Keep in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to a week or freeze and use in recipes that require frozen watermelon (it doesn’t thaw well).

    Nutritional Info

    Watermelons are very low-calorie, a rich source of Vitamin C, and contain decent amounts of Vitamins B5 and A (thanks to beta-carotene), copper, and potassium. They also contain B1, B2, B3, B6, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and zinc. Watermelons have potential to trigger digestive problems in those so inclined.

    Taste Profile

    Beautifully ripe watermelon has an unmistakable fragrant aroma and indelible sweet taste. Its texture combines a slight crunch with succulent juiciness because of a 92% water content.
