Things to love about watermelons

watermelonThe southern USA spiritual that says, “just break a watermelon right over my grave, and let the juice slip through” has got it so right in my book.

My favourite question to teenagers (cause I just love the facial expressions) is, “What makes watermelon, red?” Ans. Lycopene, a carotenoid of the same family as makes carrots orange.

And now waste watermelons may be the next source of biofuels.
