I also like watermelon and its also good to eat especially at summer time since that fruit has a lot of juices. In my country, watermelon is available all year round like bananas and pineapple. I eat different fruits as much as possible to add more fiber in my body.

hi dasari , generally i like to take fruit juices more ,rather than eating fruits. but i eat water melon in summer more. it gives more energy to us in summer ,as it has more water in it. i like to eat fresh watermelon which we can eat in a variety of ways and is also often used to flavor summer drinks and smoothies. nutrition in water melon : Watermelon contains about six percent sugar by weight, the rest being mostly water. As with many other fruits, it is a source of vitamin C. It is not a significant source of other vitamins and minerals unless one eats several kilograms per day. The amino acid citrulline was first extracted from watermelon and analysed. Watermelons contain a significant amount of citrulline and after consumption of several kg an elevated concentration is measured in the blood plasma, this could be mistaken for citrullinaemia or other urea cycle disorder. Watermelon rinds are also edible, and sometimes used as a vegetable. In China, they are stir-fried, stewed, or more often pickled. When stir-fried, the de-skinned and de-fruited rind is cooked with olive oil, garlic, chili peppers, scallions, sugar and rum. Pickled watermelon rind is also commonly consumed in the Southern US, Russia, Ukraine, Romania and Bulgaria. In Balkans, specially Serbia, watermelon slatko is also popular . Watermelon seeds are rich in fat and protein,and are widely eaten as a snack, added to other dishes, or used as an oilseed. Specialized varieties are grown which have little watery flesh but concentrate their energy into seed production. In China watermelon seeds are one of the most common snack foods, competing with sunflower seeds, and sold roasted and seasoned. In West Africa, they are pressed for oil, and are popular in egusi soup and other dishes. There can be some confusion between seed-specialized watermelon varieties and the colocynth, a closely-related species with which they share many characteristics, uses, and similar or identical names. Watermelon is 92 percent water by weight. Watermelon is also mildly diuretic. Watermelon with red flesh is a significant source of lycopene. A traditional food plant in Africa, this fruit has potential to improve nutrition, boost food security, foster rural development and support sustainable landcare. Some people also prepare and eat watermelon peel (i.e., rind). varieties : There are more than twelve hundred varieties of watermelon ranging in size from less than a pound, to more than two hundred pounds with flesh that is red, orange, yellow, or white. Seedless watermelons: Although so-called "seedless" watermelons have far fewer seeds than the seeded varieties, they generally contain at least a few soft, pale seeds. They are the product of crossing a female tetraploid plant (itself the product of genetic manipulation, using colchicine) with diploid pollen. The resulting triploid plant is sterile, but will produce the seedless fruit if pollenized by a diploid plant. For this reason, commercially available seedless watermelon seeds actually contain two varieties of seeds; that of the triploid seedless plant itself (recognizable because the seed is larger), and the diploid plant which is needed to pollenize the triploid. Unless both plant types are grown in the same vicinity, no seedless fruit will result. source :http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watermelon

Watermelon is my favorite fruit ever, especially in hot summer. It can make my throat feel so great when i eat this fruit. And i love the taste of watermelon, it has many water, and its not too sweet. I ever eat one big watermelon by myself in a very hot summer. And after that, i got fever because i ate too many watermelon. But this fruit will be always my favorite fruit ever. I love this fruit so much.
