The cultivation of organic yellow watermelons is a brand new project created by Lema in collaboration with organic growers in the west of Greece. This watermelon is the product of detailed research between 23 varieties of yellow watermelons worldwide, in order to come up with what we believe is the perfect new product for the european market. A delicious yellow mini that does not exceed 3kg in weight making it an appealing new tasting choice for the summer months.
The color of red watermelon is the result of high percentages of a phytonutrient, lycopene. Lycopene is solely responsible for the deep red color which is also the reason tomatoes are red. The lack of lycopene results in a yellow watermelon!
While yellow watermelons lack lycopene, they make up for this with their high mineral count. When biting into a yellow watermelon, you can be assured it contains magnesium, iron, calcium, phosphorus and potassium which all contribute to good heart health. Yellow watermelon is the better choice for those attempting to loose weight. On average, one cup of yellow watermelon contains just 46 calories!
While the majority of us have tasted red watermelon, only few of us have tried yellow watermelon. Those that have tried yellow watermelon, describe it as somewhat sweeter than the red species with subtle hints of honey taste!
