Watermelon is a very popular fruit these days. Especially on hot summer days, watermelon is deliciously thirst-quenching. Although a watermelon consists of 95% water, it is rich in nutrients such as iron and vitamin C. The red colour is a result of the substance 'lycopene', which is also an ingredient of tomatoes. This substance has a positive impact on our health. Superfood for sure! But did you know that watermelon is not a fruit at all? Because of its sweet taste, consumers often associate watermelon with fruit, but in fact, it is related to the cucumber and therefore a vegetable.
