I love watermelon but I have not had the chance to eat any yet,but I hope my parents get one soon,because it is very tasty,and I love it when it is red and sweet, the only thing I do not like is that if you eat it, it makes you have to pee.

I love watermelon too! I've eaten a lot for the past few months. My mom loves them too so we buy one or two everytime we drop by the market. The sweeter the better. All I hate about it are the seeds. It slows down my devouring-rate.Hehe.

Yes, as a matter of fact I just ate watermelon earlier today with my dinner. It was not too bad actually. However, on the night of my Formal/Prom (May 23rd) there was really good watermelon there. However, it could have just been because I was drunk but Im pretty sure my taste buds were still functioning properly lol.

I am just one of those persons who do not care for watermelons, I dont like the taste of them at all. Most people eat them though.

Yes its such a great fruit to eat during the summer. Nothing quenches your thirst like this fruit. Its absolutely filling and tasty. SO sad that the watermelon season is over here. i Miss that fruit.....

I bought one a few weeks ago. It was not very sweet at all. We ended up pitching most of it in the compost because it was not very good. I hate it when you pay all that money for a watermelon and then it does not taste good.

yes, always have. here in the philippines we can eat watermelon yearround. you were trying to look for seedless kind? i heard if choose that kind, the farmers put a lot of chemicals just to produce the seedless type (just like what they do for seedless grapes). be careful though

I have and it was delicious. I stopped by cousin the other day tohave coffee and chit chat a little and she put out fruit, cookies and cake. The cake looked so good, but when I looked over at the watermelon, it was so red and juicy that I had to just try a piece. Well, one piece turned into two and then three and it was just so good. She had it cut up in small bite size peices so I lost track of how many I ate by the time I was done.

No, I have not eaten watermelon yet this year, I saw some in the shop the other day but thought it was a little on the expensive side. I have however been eating a lot of honeydew melon as it has been half price in my supermarket, this is absolutely my favourite melon ever.

I still haven't eaten a watermelong yet. I keep trying to remind myself to tell my mom to get some but I forget to tell her and with the money issues right now we have to buy the necessities. But hopefully we'll get to eat some before the summer is over. I really love watermelon because it's so tasty.

Hello dear sun_kissed friend. In fact, I have had watermelon all the year round. I eat it more often in summer and autumn, but in other seasons, like spring, winter, I have more chances to eat the watermelon in a hotel when having a formal dinner with my foreign colleagues and my boss, because it is always served as dessert after dinner. Right now it is summer and I buy watermelon every other day to eat it, as my wife and my son also like it.

I got half a watermelon yesterday,it's red and sweet,I eat it with my friends,but it's not enough for five people......I like watermelon very much,especially in summer,Maybe it's the best way for me to relieve summer-heat.It is well known that eating watermelon can induce diuresis,expel of toxin.it's good for our health.
