JULY: Juicy Watermelon

1st July 2023

Watermelon flavouring is chosen for its refreshing and sweet taste that captures the essence of ripe, juicy watermelons. Watermelon is perfect for those summer months because of its juicy, refreshing characteristics.

The flavour

Watermelon has a distinct taste that blends sweetness with a subtle hint of tanginess. The flavour is reminiscent of biting into a perfectly ripe watermelon, with its juicy, succulent flesh. It offers a refreshing burst of coolness, balanced by a natural sweetness that is both refreshing and satisfying.

Watermelons originated in Africa and have been cultivated for thousands of years. Today, they are grown in various regions around the world, including the United States, China, Turkey, and Brazil. The warm climates and fertile soils of these regions provide optimal conditions for watermelon cultivation.

The natural sweetness and juiciness of watermelon complement the tartness or acidity of these fruits, creating a harmonious blend of flavours. Additionally, herbs like mint or basil can enhance the overall freshness of watermelon-based dishes and beverages.
