A colourful note:  wild watermelon was one of the 1990 fluorescent name changes, when Ultra Red transformed into Wild Watermelon.

The refreshing watermelon fruit has strong-coloured flesh, just demanding to become a Crayola crayon shade.  Its redness comes from the lycopene chemical, the same source as red as for tomatoes but, interestingly watermelons have more of it.

This large, popular fruit is believed to hold a number of health qualities including claims to be a natural viagra. It contains high levels of vitamins A, B6 and C, and is a strong source of potassium. Its makeup is around 90% water so is a good way to stay hydrated and that colouring lycopene is believed to help reduce the risk of heart disease and various cancers, plus protecting the skin against harmful UV rays.
