Daylight saving time is melon time. At the moment we have around 30 degrees every day, and we can watch the melons grow, bigger and bigger.
What are watermelons actually made of? First and foremost, a watermelon contains – as the name suggests – water, about 90 to 95 percent. Apart from that, however, the fruit fibers also contain many vitamins, especially vitamin A and some vitamin C. In addition, there is a significant iron content as well as magnesium, phosphate and calcium.
We planted 3 varieties, on the one hand watermelons and 2 different sugar melons. Interesting to know that the water and sugar melons are not related to each other, at least in botany. The sugar melons are closer to the cucumbers… with us, the two grow close to each other and therefore belong together.
Towards the end of July, the first ones are ripe. If you feel like it, you are welcome to test on Sa Contissa!
