It’s that time of year again, folks – National Watermelon Day is just around the corner on August 3rd.! So, grab your slice of juicy goodness and get ready to celebrate in style. And in honor of this delicious holiday, we’ve compiled some fun facts that will make you appreciate watermelons even more.
First of all, did you know that watermelons are 92% water? That’s right, this sweet fruit is practically a drink in and of itself. And speaking of sweet, watermelons are also a great source of natural sugar, making them the perfect treat for those hot summer days.
But the fun facts don’t stop there. Did you know that the world’s largest watermelon weighed in at a whopping 350 pounds? That’s like having a small car made entirely of watermelon. And if you’re looking to break a world record of your own, you could always try the watermelon seed-spitting contest. The current world record holder spat a seed over 68 feet – that’s one powerful mouth!
But enough about records, let’s talk about the real reason we’re all here – to indulge in some delicious watermelon treats. From watermelon slushies to watermelon pizza (yes, it’s a thing), there’s no shortage of ways to enjoy this summertime staple.
So, whether you’re celebrating National Watermelon Day by hosting a backyard BBQ or simply devouring a slice on your front porch, remember to savor every juicy bite. After all, watermelons aren’t just a fruit, they’re a summertime icon.
