Watermelon – Vietgro

Watermelon

Watermelon (Citrullus lanatus) belongs to the Cucurbitaceae family and is related to plants like cantaloupe, squash and pumpkin that grow as vines. Watermelon definitely tops the list of foods that people love to eat in the summer. It is a refreshing, delicious and thirst-quenching fruit on a hot day. The water content in watermelon is also extremely helpful in keeping the body hydrated during the hot summer months.

Watermelon is usually consumed as a fresh fruit. In Africa, it is sometimes cooked before eating and may also be used as an animal feed. Watermelon juice is also one of the most refreshing beverage in the world.

Watermelon is an excellent source of potassium, vitamins C and A, and contains a high concentration of beta-carotene. Red watermelon rind also contains the phyto-nutrient citrulline, which has health benefits such as increased blood flow throughout the body.
