I'll be doing this tonight, Yakuta! I just bought one and was so disappointed when I cut into it and it wasn't sweet at all.

Love watermellon! The taste of summer! I prefer seedless...they are smaller and easier to put in the fridge too. BTW watermellon is very nutricious...and is a red fruit...really good for you.

Absolutely!

Life is so beautiful when a young child involved. Or a puppy. Since my days are behind me, you make me remember the way I used to feel. Better than any holiday. Almost like July 4, never knowing what will be shot off next. Those days are for you and her mom. Have to tell her all about it when she gets children of her own. That is something to look forward to. Only enjoy each day that you share. You deserve it.

I think the regular watermelon is much sweeter than the seedless the seeds dont bother me at all.

We have a favorite family story about feeding very young daughter watermelon one fine summer day. She was so streaked with juice that the flies all gravitated to her. And yes, we hosed her off!

We accidentally got a yellow fleshed watermelon once. I didn't care for its flavour much. Anyone else tried one of those?

never heard of it, Alix. But when it's not a color you are used to there could be negative reactions.... blue mashed potatoes, for example.

I'd never seen one either, this was sort of a surprise. (Blue mashed potatoes would be a definite UGH! I'm not a big potato fan unless they are sliced fine and deep fried!!)

I've had seeded, seedless, red-, orange-, yellow-, and coral-fleshed watermelons. I'm not a big fan of any of them, unless they are "sugar sweet".

PeppA has been buying one watermelon a week lately. The kids love it. Of course, I'm cleaning seeds and dried watermelon juice off the table and floors. Such is life. I'll have to try to get some pictures of the little ones eating watermelon.

For You

GB: this was for you. Some might think I am crazy or in wrong place. Look how many others 'hose' off after they get through! mudbug even said something about flies landing on someone. Must have been pretty sweet.

Absolutely!

i read your comments and then responded. should have put 'quote' down there. Seems everyone has memories connected to watermelon. Could it be because it isn't around year round? I have seen trucks on side of road loaded w/watermelons. Wish I would know when they got there.

Cleaning up is just part of the fun of eating the watermelon. Now when I clean I will think of you AllenMI when I do it. Might make the time easier to take. Only thankful they do eat it. Relative of mine always prefers to get Dairy Queen instead. Don't know why the mother allows it . We all eat watermelon and she wants ice cream!
