Watermelon .. not only for summer

Savory, healthy watermelon is recommended not only for hot, summer time.

Watermelon is an ideal health food because it does not contain any fat or cholesterol,” - explains Chef Harry. “It’s delicious and you can eat as much of it as you’d like.”

With 92 percent water, watermelon is a natural hydrator and nutrient dense food containing vitamins A, B6 and C, as well as fiber and potassium.
Watermelon is the leader among fresh fruits and vegetables as a source of the health-promoting antioxidant lycopene, which gives the color to red varieties of watermelon. Watermelon also contains the medically important amino acids citrulline and arginine, which help maintain cardiovascular health.
