Watermelon

I studied this fruit - and I found out that it's not even a fruit, but a vegetable. :D (related to pumpkins and cucumbers)
Watermelon is an ideal health food, because it doesn’t contain any fat or cholesterol. Also it is high in fiber and vitamins A & C. Also it is 92% water.
In Japan, you'll find cube-shaped watermelons: they are grown in special cubic containers and their price is usually at least twice that of a normal watermelon. It tastes the same, but it is easier to store in the fridge.
When you buy a watermellon, you should look for a healthy symmetrical one, with no bruises and scars. Also it should be firm and heavy (after all, it's ~92% water). And last but not least, turn the watermelon over untill you see a creamy yellowish spot; that is the spot where the watermellon sat on the ground while it soaked up the sun. Check for that spot and if it's greenish, that watermelon was picked too soon.

And now, a nice HD wallpaper for you guys :)
