Watermelon – The Nutritious Juicy Fruit
Watermelons are a popular and refreshing fruit known for their sweet and juicy taste. This fruit is typically consumed during the summertime. Watermelon is a highly cultivated fruit worldwide.
This fruit is known for its incredibly hydrating property, with about 91 percent of its composition being water. It is not just a thirst-quencher but also packed with essential nutrients. Every juicy mouthful provides substantial amounts of vitamins A, B6, and C and abundant lycopene, antioxidants, and amino acids.
Additionally, it contains a small but beneficial dose of potassium. Furthermore, this classic summer fruit is completely free of fat, extremely low in sodium, and contains only 40 calories per cup.
Cultivation of Watermelon in Pakistan
Watermelon cultivation is widespread in Pakistan, primarily for local consumption. Benefiting from suitable soil and climate conditions. Watermelons thrive in sandy loam soils with effective drainage and a soil pH ranging from 7.5 to 8. They are sensitive to temperature extremes; low temperatures can hinder their growth, and the excessive heat can disrupt the pollination process, leading to reduced crop yields.
In Pakistan, the availability of locally grown watermelons begins in April and extends through September, originating from various regions of the country. The summer season witnessed a surge in demand for watermelons, resulting in significant profit opportunities for both farmers and traders.
Nutritional Fact of Watermelon
Watermelon primarily comprises water (91%) and carbohydrates (7.5%). It contains minimal amounts of both protein and fat, making it a low-calorie option. In a 2/3 cup (100 grams) serving of raw watermelon, you can expect to find the following nutrients:

- Water content: 91%
- Protein: 0.6 grams

Watermelon – A Good Source of Vitamins & Minerals
Watermelon is a valuable source of essential nutrients, including:
- Vitamin C: This antioxidant is crucial for maintaining healthy skin and a strong immune system.
- Potassium: Important for regulating blood pressure and promoting heart health.
- Copper: A mineral often deficient in Western diets but abundant in plant-based foods.
- Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid): Present in most foods to some degree.
- Vitamin A: Watermelon contains beta-carotene, which your body can convert into vitamin A.
Besides these valuable vitamins and minerals, there are also some other valuable compounds present in this fruit. This includes:
This is an essential amino acid arginine. It plays a significant role in supporting various organs, including the lungs, kidneys, and liver, as well as the immune and reproductive systems. Additionally, it has demonstrated its ability to enhance the healing of wounds.
This is a powerful antioxidant that gives red color to the watermelon. Indeed, when it comes to lycopene, fresh watermelon outperforms tomatoes. Studies have also demonstrated that consuming fresh watermelon juice is an efficient way to increase the levels of both lycopene and beta-carotene in the bloodstream. Lycopene is used by the body to a certain extent in the production of beta-carotene, which is subsequently transformed into vitamin A.
