The high water content in watermelon signals to your body that you are full, meaning you’ll eat less. Watermelon also contains the antioxidant lycopene.
Easy to eat, refreshing to drink and nutritious in its content- Watermelon, the juicy, red and cooling fruit available through out the world. I believe it is irrelevant to talk about its benefits as everyone knows about it. But, how many of us know how to pick the right one when buying it? So, I tried writing down a few tips about the selection process. Let me know whether it was helpful.
– Find one without any cuts, dents or bruises.
– Symmetrical one which is firm.
– Heavy for its size.
– Turn it over and check for a yellow region on its surface. Yellow area indicates that it rested on ground while ripening in the sun. That would give a juicier and sweeter watermelon.
– Instead of thumping the melon, try slapping it. If it sounds hollow, it is ripe.
– Now, buy it.
You are the proud owner of a sweet and juicy watermelon.
** It contains 92% water, Vitamin A, B6 and Beta carotene.
