The watermelon is one of the largest fruits known. Its shape is mainly rounded, and it has a hard and smooth rind. The colours of its skin and flesh distinctively characterize watermelon due to their beautiful contrast.

The watermelon’s taste is a combination of watery-refreshing and juicy-sweet, thus resulting in a very attractive fruit in hot summers.

Seedless watermelon, although it has not been available in our markets for long, was developed in Japan in 1939, as a result of a simple hybridization process amongst plants with incompatible chromosome sets.
