Our fields produce delicious seeded and seedless watermelons.
Watermelon is a delicious and refreshing fruit that’s also good for health.
It contains only 46 calories per cup, but is high in vitamin C, vitamin A and many healthy plant compounds.
Watermelon is also high in carotenoids, including beta-carotene and lycopene. Plus, it has citrulline, an important amino acid that may increase nitric oxide levels in the body. Nitric oxide helps your blood vessels expand, which lowers blood pressure helping you to get better health conditions: Including a better performance in sexual activity!
Researchers have studied lycopene and other individual plant compounds in watermelon for their anti-cancer effects. Although lycopene intake is linked to a lower risk of some types of cancer, the results are mixed. The strongest link so far seems to be between lycopene and cancers of the digestive system. Studies suggest that lycopene may help lower cholesterol and blood pressure. It can also help prevent oxidative damage to cholesterol.
Available from January to April.
