Nothing like sinking into a large bowl of cool, juicy watermelon as the weather starts to heat up. I’ve developed an easy and fool-proof method for breaking down whole watermelons into perfectly cubed, bite-sized pieces, whether I’m getting ready to host a backyard BBQ or want to prep fresh fruit ahead of time for my boys to grab during the week.

Watermelon Nutrition Facts

watermelon

Watermelon is a low-calorie summer food that is sweet and refreshing. It contains vital elements such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and hydration. Watermelons belong to the Cucurbitaceae family, including cantaloupe, honeydew, and cucumber. Watermelon is grown in various temperatures worldwide, from tropical to temperate, for its enormous edible fruit. It is a berry with a hard skin and no internal divisions and is botanically known as a pepo.

 

Many chronic diseases are fueled by inflammation. Watermelon’s antioxidants, lycopene, and vitamin C may aid in reducing inflammation and oxidative damage.

How To Tell If A Watermelon Is Bad?

You can tell if a watermelon is getting rancid by its appearance. If it’s discolored, mushy, or smells bad, it’s time to throw it out. The skin should have a bright color, and the flesh should be free of any blemishes. If a watermelon has a strong, foul odor, throw it out.

There are also some warning signs to look for. If a watermelon’s flesh is soft and mushy, it’s time to toss it. A tangy, sour, or foul-smelling smell is another sign, and it’s also past its storage time.
