International Watermelon day

Did you know that today is the international watermelon day?
Watermelon is a fruit originated in Africa and has a high content of vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, B and C and potassium. There are different varieties of watermelon, red, yellow, seedless and even square watermelons! Watermelon is good for your health, and even though it does not contain as much dietary fiber as other fruits, it does not contain fats, it has a high content of water and low content in calories. 

One concern from customers when they buy any type of fruit or vegetables is pesticide residue. According to FAO, a pesticide is any substance used to prevent, destroy, attract, repel or fight any pest, including undesired species of plants or animals, during production, storing, transportation, distribution and food or feed manufacturing or agriculture products, or that can be administered to animals to fight ectoparasites.
