What’s in season and how to make the most of it: Watermelon
One of the most anticipated fruits of the summer season is watermelon, and rightly so. The juiciest and the most famous of all melons is the watermelon.

Apart from being an absolute delight to it, watermelon also comes with an abundance of health benefits, such as aiding weight loss and helping in energy production.
