The Fregetable


The watermelon. Big, round and juicy.
Nothing says fun summer eating like it.

But even better than fun, the watermelon is also good for you. It contains higher levels of the antioxidant lycopene than any other fresh fruit or vegetable (even more than the tomato). Also rich in vitamins C, B1, B6 and A, and an excellent hydrator (made from 92 percent water after all), it is low in fat and sodium and cholesterol free. Oh yeah, and delicious too.

And what’s a fregetable (fruit AND vegetable) anyway? Watermelon is considered a fruit as it is the ripened ovary of a seed plant but it’s also related to the cucumber and squash and planted from seedlings and cleared from the field which makes it a vegetable too.
