The first recorded watermelon harvest was 5000 years ago in Egypt. In China and Japan, watermelons are considered the perfect gift to bring a host. To pick a perfect watermelon, look for one that is dark green in colour and heavy. Ripe watermelons are on average 92% water; higher water content indicates a riper melon water which makes them heavier.
