One of the things that make me look forward to summer, apart from holidaying with the family, is the watermelon season.  It somehow makes the summer heat more bearable.  Picture this:  The crunch as your teeth sink into its fleshy red "meat," its juice oozing out and maybe dribbling down the sides of your lips a little, the assault of sweet freshness as your brain registers what you just put in your mouth.  Hmmm.... *savoring* 

The watermelon, is one fruit that I can eat only in its original form. That is, anything watermelon-flavored does not interest me at all; I find those usually too sweet and too artificial-tasting .  Watermelon juice? Meh, waste of the fruit. I don't eat it off the rind, though. I cut up the watermelon into chunks, remove the rind, chill.  I can then scoop out chunks any time I need a pick-me-up on a hot, humid day (or anytime, really!).

What is your favorite fruit?

(If you think this photo looks familiar, it is because it's the same photo I'd taken five years ago!)

I am so with you! I love me some watermelon, but always off the rind and not artificial!

I'm the same way about cherries. The flavor gets so mixed up when its in a different form.

I love so much fruit, picking a favourite is tricky, nectarines, strawberries, raspberries, melon, banana....oh I am a real fruit fiend

mmm watermelon yum, my favourite summer fruit are cherries but sadly they are very expensive here, we only buy them on the odd occasions.

Water melon is not one of my favorites.... but I feel as passionately about Cantaloupe, or strawberries.
