Of all the different fruits out there today, watermelons’ sheer size and striking colors make them undeniably one of the most eye-catching. In fact, you’d be hard-pressed to miss them while browsing the supermarket shelves. But while you may then be tempted to grab a melon to take home with you, don’t gorge on it all in one go.
