I’m sitting here doing my show, admittedly eating my watermelon, when I stopped and thought to myself. Why don’t I eat more watermelon, it is literally the greatest fruit of ALL-TIME. So I dedicate this post to the fruit that some say is too heavy to bring home from the grocery store, that people complain about because it takes too long to cut, but at the end of the day everyone loves it.
First off let us just talk nutritionally, it legit has one of the most healthy things in the world [WATER] in the actual name of the fruit. Which means the more you eat, the more hydrated you become, which in Hampton Roads when the temperature reaches 115 degrees, is important. I probably don’t need to go any further with this argument, but I’m in a watermelon mood today, so I progress.
Secondly, everyone calls watermelon the fruit of the summer, and while it may be delicious on the hottest days of the year, you can still get the tasteful fruit YEAR ROUND! I don’t know why I haven’t figured that out sooner, but in my opinion this is a game changer. Why eat any other fruit, it’s nutritious, it looks amazing, it tastes better than it looks, and you can get it ALL Year long!
And lastly, can we talk about the innovation of the seedless watermelon? Talk about a bigger game changer than it being available all year long. Now don’t get me wrong, there is a little bit of fun when you find a watermelon full of seeds, and you eat the melon and spit out the seeds. But spitting is a bad habit, so it is probably for the best.
There is one thing I have to say, it will be a short point, but an important one. Whoever decided that Yellow Watermelons belong in grocery stores, needs to be immediately stripped of their title of grocery importer. Because it does not belong anywhere near the traditional Red Watermelon.
I know I have probably lost a lot of you, but for those who have stuck around until the end, you obviously are just as fascinated with Watermelon as I am. So let us all join together today on August 4, 2019. That watermelon is the Greatest Fruit of ALL-TIME!
