Watermelons are in season at Everest Farm

Will at Everest Farm Bananas has let me know that watermelons are now back in season. What fantastic news this is – we have all certainly missed the melons since their last season. Watermelons are great at this time of year as they are great for hydration – they are 92% water and a natural sweet source of keeping your body hydrated. The red colour of watermelons comes from lycopene, which is an antioxidant – watermelon has more of this nutrient than any other fruit or veggie — even tomatoes. So the riper the better. Watermelon is also full of vitamin A, vitamin C and B6 making it good for your skin. Watermelons are best enjoyed as a healthy snack, as part of a fruit salad, juice or smoothie (even check out our recipe of the week the other week which featured this juicy fruit). Make the most of the season while it’s here and get yours this week from Everest Farm.
