Watermelon in the Summer Times

Since daily temperature is above 30* C (86* F), watermelon is one of popular fruits in our areas.

The fact that watermelon plants need warm temperatures to grow well. This fruit season is different from state to state in the USA. Our state, Louisiana has watermelon season is about early June to late August.

There are plenty of watermelon’s varieties, about 1,200 varieties in the world, but only 200 varieties have economic values.

Our state has well known variety called as “Washington Parish watermelons.” The sweet and good quality watermelons. All watermelons which are grown in the Washington Parish have “red stickers” from local grower association.

During the season, we may easily found watermelons either in the farmer markets or sold in the junctions of streets with reasonable price.

  4. Por estos lados se cultiva todo el año, con gran profusión, y cae como un calmante de la sed, a cada mordizco, en tiempos en que la temperatura se pone como allá, arriba de los 30. Un abrazo. Carlos

  7. I like a lot the water melon. The local one is similar to the Washington parish and the season is the same: from June to late August. Here, in summer, many stands open to sell only fruit and water melons.

  10. We also have them in the months of July and August...
    It's an excellent moisturizer indeed... It's rich in lycopene, so it's always good to eat seeds or a dry fruit.
    Happy summer days.

    As melancias com adesivo vermelho devem ser as melhores.

  20. YUM... you are making me want to head to the store and buy a watermelon right now. Chilled watermelon is the perfect way to cool down and rehydrate on a hot summer day!

  22. La sandía es una fruta muy saludable , cuando hace calor es muy refrescante. Me encanta hacer purés o sopas frías de sandía. Muy interesante tu información. Saludos
