Carbs in Watermelon

By Jennifer Shun  |  Nutrition data source USDA

I used to fear watermelon seeds and I might not be alone. My girls adored Greg Pizzoli’s summer tale surrounding a couple of crocodiles sharing the same angst after gobbling a seed in a summer fruit frenzy. All ends well, but I can assure you I personally always opt for a seedless variety when available.

Seeds or no seeds, did you know a watermelon is 92% water? The fun facts don’t end there, if you’re interested or maybe just looking for a little reading material while you snack and hydrate, look it up.

Nutritionally, watermelon is not only low calories and carbohydrates, but contains vitamins A and C, potassium, and antioxidants. If nibbling a cold wedge in the summer sun isn’t for you, try crisp slices paired with briny feta and topped with fresh mint or toss chunky cubes and sun-ripened tomatoes in a sherry vinaigrette.
