Watermellon seems to contain much water. It's so dry here that I decided to eat watermelons every day. But my friends tell me something about that it is not good to eat it these days and so on. Some think it not good tasted. I have just bought one that tastes very good. But is it like what they have said that it's not good eating watermelons in early summer?

I don't see why watermelons should be harmful. They are very good source of water and electrolytes

Watermelon is very good especially during summers and not so summer days :) Here in the Philippines watermelon is almost always available the whole year although it's cheaper during MArch to April and early even early May. Maybe because your friend tasted not the smooth type, there are varieties that's grainy and not so sweet. You can even make watermelon shake.

it's very strange that your friend advices you not to eat watermelon. maybe because the watermelon costs a bit higher during early summer since the bulk of it is harvested on the merry May month. Another thing is watermelon prevents dehydration during the hottest day.I even prefers to eat watermelon done drink water on places that i think potable water is not safe to drink..i also love to eat it chilled..

Watermelon is good but I don't think its advisable to eat it everyday. Most food are good for health but doesn't mean that you should eat them everyday. Take them in moderate will be enough.

I think that summer is the perfect time to eat watermelon because it is in season and the fruit is very sweet. Its feel good to eat watermelon because it eases the heat that we feel. I haven't heard of anything like what your friend said that it is bad to eat watermelon during summer.
