Hyderabad is flooded with Watermelons; you can find them everywhere, in malls, fruit markets, roadside carts and temporary stalls. Earlier, Watermelons were available exclusively during summer. But nowadays they are available over longer periods and in abundance in summer.
Large scale demand and availability speaks for itself about the popularity of Watermelons among the people of Twin Cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. There is no doubt that it is everybody’s favorite summer fruit, from toothless children to toothless elderly persons. Its color is appealing and every bite soft and crispy with great taste and flavor, filled with ample juice is very refreshing.
The simple carving of a Watermelon-vendor you see at the top of this article is by our 5-year old granddaughter; Sudhiksha, with some help from us.
