Watermelon – The Fruit of Kings

Watermelon - The Fruit of Kings

Watermelon is one of my favorite fruits and I am in good company. This fruit was held in such regard that it was placed in the tombs of many Egyptian kings !

Watermelon tastes great, quenches thirst, is an excellent source of vitamin C and lycopene. Lycopene is an antioxidant and has been found to be protective against a growing list of cancers. Plus because of it’s thick skin the exposure to those nasty pesticides is much lower than that of many other fruits and vegetables.

Watermelon is also considered to have many benefits by Chinese Medicine. The fruit (Xi Gua) and the seeds (Xi Gua Ren) are used for headache, nausea, irritability, low appetite, sluggish digestion and sore throat.

for something different, try this recipe for watermelon gazpacho.
