Water Melon

watermelon is just water and sugar, watermelon is actually a nutrient dense food. It provides high levels of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants and just a small number of calories.

Watermelons have become synonymous with summer and picnics, and for good reason. Their refreshing quality and sweet taste help to combat the heat and provide a guilt-free, low maintenance dessert.

In the watermelon, the kernels sit in the pulp if it is not stone-free. Watermelon originally comes from Africa where it is still growing wild. It is cultivated today in several of the countries around the Mediterranean. Watermelon is available in several varieties, colors and shapes. Most common is round watermelon with red pulp, but there is also yellow watermelon on the Norwegian market. There is now watermelon that is devoid of kernels in the pulp. This is a very popular variant of consumers. Watermelon is usually 3 to 4 kilos, but can also appear much larger. The pulp is described as crispy, very juicy, mild and slightly acidic.

Watermelon is a summer product and is often used in dishes that are associated with summer and heat. It can be divided in several ways either in smaller boats or in larger boats which are again cut into slices. It is a good thirst quencher. Watermelon is also suitable cut into pieces for summer salad, natural as a refreshment or as dessert alone or in fruit salad. It can also be used for fruit bowls.

Red watermelon with stones is rich in flavor and the stones can be eaten. It is somewhat cheaper in purchasing than variants without stones.

Stone-free red watermelon is a newer variety produced in the 90s. Solid, fresh and crispy in texture and rich in flavor. Good and delicious and easy to eat.

Stony yellow watermelon is firm, fresh and crispy in texture. Like the red on taste. Strong yellow in the pulp.
