It’s a fact of life, “fresh is best”. There is simply no better way of having fresher vegetables packed with nutrients and fibre, than harvesting them right from your very own garden. Pohlmans Gourmet Vegetables® Watermelon Mini produces round to slightly oval 4-6 kg fruit. The skin is a light grey green, and flesh is bright red. Eat fresh, juice, or add to fruit salads. Watermelon has a thirst quenching taste, is loaded with antioxidants, and is a good source of vitamins and minerals.
