Watermelon is a tropical fruit that originated in Africa and requires high temperatures to grow. It has been cultivated for centuries, with wild varieties being used as a natural source of water for travelers in the desert. Over time, breeding has led to improvements in taste, sugar content, size, and other important features. However, the most significant innovation in the history of watermelon breeding was the discovery of seedless varieties in the 1950s.
Today, watermelon remains one of the top 5 vegetable crops produced worldwide in terms of quantity. There are many different varieties of watermelon, including Crimson Sweet, Charleston Grey, and Sugar Baby, each with its own unique characteristics and flavor profile.

Discover the Evolution of Refreshment: Seedless Watermelon – the Watermelon Revolution!
Over the past years, we’ve witnessed various trends in the consumption of vegetables and fruits. Among the most remarkable trends lies in the world of fruit vegetables, particularly with watermelons.
Watermelons were once deemed inconvenient. Especially for smaller households, they were considered too large, generating too much waste, and too heavy to carry. The lack of good taste and quality also led buyers to explore other fruit options. However, with the introduction of premium, delicious, seedless mini and midi watermelons, consumption has skyrocketed. In some countries, it has even surged by over 10% in the last 5 years. Watermelons are now embraced as a healthy snack, a delightful addition to meals, or even as a revitalizing drink.
Ranked 3rd Among Fresh Produce
The popularity of watermelons is surging worldwide, consistently securing a spot among the top 5 most consumed fruits globally. In the European Union, watermelon ranks 3rd for refreshment, trailing only behind apples and oranges. In the USA, watermelon claims the 3rd spot of preference, following bananas and apples. As the world faced the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, individuals placed an even greater emphasis on their health, providing an additional boost to the demand for fresh watermelon products.
