For me, there is nothing like a good, sweet, juicy watermelon, especially in the summer time. Now we all know that there are a couple different ways to eat a watermelon. You can eat it with a fork, or you can just dive in with your mouth. I eat it either way, depending on where I am. If I am having it with a meal or out in a public place, I will be dignified. But if I am in my back yard on a particularly hot day. I don't care what anybody thinks, I am going to tear that watermelon up. It will not stand a chance with me. What about you, how do you like your watermelon?

I love watermelon too! I don't care what I look like when I eat it either.:P My husband will eat the white seeds, but I can't do all that. Yuck! He doesn't care....just goes for it head first and doesn't come up for air until he is done. LOL! You are so right, there is nothing like a big, juicy watermelon on a hot summer day.

That is so cute. Your husband really knows how to eat a watermelon doesn't he. It seems like that would be a whole lot of fun to watch. Maybe you should time him and get his best record time.

i love eating watermelons in the summer. i like them cold, so that when you bite into them the juices that run down your chin cools you off, too! they're the perfect way to refresh yourself in the summeritme heat.

Popsicle - This is a picture of a purple popsicle.
You are so right. I don't think there is any other food in the world that is more refreshing and fun to eat in the summer, accept maybe, a popsicle.

Of course I like eating watermelon in summer. Especially when we put it into the fridge and then you can enjoy the cold watermelon. It tastes sweeater and it's so juicy. It's the best way to forget the high temperature in the hot summer.

I just bought my first watermelon of the season. The prices here in New Jersey finally came down. I paid $3.88. It was delicious. We sliced the watermelon up into chunks and put them in plastic containers. I usually fork it out of the container. If I have a slice I'll either use a fork or spoon. Watermelon is one of the best tasting fruits on the planet. And they are very good for you. Lloyd

You are a very patient person, I would not take the time to cut in into cubes and put it in a container. By the time you got finished with all of that, my watermelon would be gone, and then I would start looking at your containers, hehehe.

One time my aunt and I almost had an argument because she swore up and down that back when she was a child in the country, they ate watermelon with a fork. She is soooo funny to me.

I know exactly what you mean. I live 19 blocks from the Santa Monica beach. Believe me, it helps. This is going to be one hot summer here in California, but I am ready. Already got my air on full blast.

Yes, I love eating Watermelon. I used to put Watermelon in the freezer for 1 or 2 hours. Thus, it has ice on it. I also eat it with salt. It is really refreshing.

I have have eaten it with salt also, that IS good. I have never had it ice cold as from the freezer though. I don't think that my teeth could take that.

Hi Rozie37, Yes, i love to eat watermelons in summer. They'll be cool for the body and suffice us easily. They can even be used as a replacement for cool drinks, so much cooling effect they have. Its like a family pack, one watermelon can easily satisfy a whole family.

watermelon - This is a fresh watermelon juice! I love it cold during summer!
Hello rozie!(",) My family and I love to eat watermelon even if its not summer. It's really very delicious and nutritious. I eat it without fork or spoon because its nice to eat it directly with mouth. Sometimes, we also make watermelon juice just by adding ice and milk to it. It's not watermelon season here as of now but there are still many watermelon in the market but a bit expensive by this time. Have a great day!(",)

I just love watermelon! The only problem are the seeds. Whenever I eat watermelon, there's this habit I usually do: spit out the seeds. :)

I know, the seeds can be bothersome. I try to spit them out also, but sometime I just chew them too. The seeds take away from the taste of the watermelon though.

I did not know that it was high in carbohydrates. I learn something new every day. I wish I could say that I was dieting, but diets have never worked for me. I love to exercise though. My new picture is so funny to me. This was my first grade class picture. The smile is fake and I am losing my teeth,hehehe.

I like to eat watermelon all year round. I like my watermelon sweet and juicy. I like to add season salt to mine watermelon. I like to eat it when it is cold, to me it tastes better cold. I always cut my melon up and place it in a bowl and sprinkle the season salt on top and then eat it with my fingers.

I must remember those numbers. I know that the numbers on fruit mean something, but I don't remember what exactly. We usually try to judge by the deepness of the lines in the watermelon to tell if it is sweet, sometimes we get it right, sometimes not. A lot of people have different methods. It would be nice to have a sure one.
