Most watermelons bought in this country are tasteless. I wait till I go to italy, where they are lovey, jucy and very tasty!

You have to try them out to buy the right one, as a lot of watermelons are crap over here.

Watermelons are amazing in hot countries, we used to have it every morning in Cyprus at my nans house and it compliments the boiling hot weather perfectly.

I used to Have Vodka melon parties when in Israel, they were huge over there.

Recipe:

1 Large Watermelon
1 bottle Vodka/Rum (Whatever you like)
Syringes (Ask your nearest vet, don't get the diabetic ones from Boots it will take you a week to fill)

Instructions:
Slowly inject the bottle of spirits until all is in
Stick in fridge for 24hrs.

Slice and enjoy.

I have done this and its great, you dont have to use syringes. Just get a funnel, cut a small hole and force the funnel in. Leave it sitting like that in the kitchen. Keep topping it up with vodka. It will slowly absorb thw vodka. Its slower then the syringe method but still works.

*Wonders how long it will take until someone says "Watermelon's don't have point's"*

I'm sure we were all aware of that but because they're imported, it's obviously not as nice/fresh as the countries they're grown in. :whistling:

Or... maybe they reserve the best for themselves. :giggle:

Love melons

they taste good and are fun to eat and really juicy

My kids love water melon... But I agree they are better over in SPain and Greece, and Also delicious when we were in St Lucia
