Watermelon

What is Watermelon?

Watermelon is usually large, sweet, heavy, juicy, bulky, prone to causing stains, and very big. Japanese watermelons are often cube-shaped, to better fit in a small refrigerator.

Watermelon Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Watermelon Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
