Health Benifits :

Watermelon : Watermelon  contains thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, manganese, selenium, choline, lycopene and betaine. According to the National Watermelon Promotion Board, watermelon contains more lycopene than any other fruit or vegetable.

Honey : antibacterial,antioxidant,antitumor,anti-flammatory,and antiviral.
Ginger : antiviral,anti-inflammatory,aids digestion,effective against human respiratory syncytial virus.

How to Choose ?

# CUTTING :If you are purchasing a pre-cut watermelon pieces that has already been sliced into halves or quarters,choose the flesh that is deepest in colour and lacks any white streahing. If the cut watermelon piece is seeded,the seeds should also be deep in colour,or white.
# COLOUR :The top and the bottom of a watermelon are worth to examine.                                                                                                      
Ground Spot
Spot where it was resting
Top  Spot
Dull  (not be shiny)
Opposite to ground spot
Light green to deeper
Side shades

# WEIGHT :When purchasing a whole,uncut watermelon,the first thing is its weight.Heaviness in the watermelon is a good thing because the water content of a watermelon will typically increase along with ripening and it has 90% water in terms of weight.   
# CHECK BY THUMB : A fully ripened watermelon will have a deeper,hollower “bass” sound than solid and shallow “soprano” sound.
