The fruit has permeated pop culture and resides in many forms of our favorite flavors of lemonade, Jell-O, wine, flavored water, sour candies and more. 

But we owe it all to the original, fresh fruit itself. There are many reasons to love the watermelon. 

The fruit is around 90% water and contains healthy antioxidants that help the body remove substances known as free radicals, which are harmful in high quantities. Experts suggest watermelon can help protect the body against conditions such as asthma, blood pressure, cancer and can improve digestion, hydration, brain function and nervous system reaction.
