Watermelon

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, watermelons are free of fat and cholesterol. They're also low in sodium and a good source of vitamin A and high in vitamin C.

Produce Tips

  • Watermelon's red color is caused by lycopene, a carotenoid pigment that researchers believe is a powerful antioxidant that helps fight cancer and other diseases.
  • Watermelons are also a good source of vitamin A, which helps promote healthy eyes and skin.
  • Vitamin C is another vitamin found in watermelon. The cancer-fighting antioxidant has been shown to help improve immune system health.
