Did you know there are several types of watermelons?

No, I'm not talking about whether or not the watermelon is seedless or not. I'm talking about the flesh inside of the watermelon.

Of course, most people know that watermelon usually tastes super sweet especially if you pick a ripe one. But did you know that there is actually such thing as a Yellow Watermelon? Now, the outside of the watermelon isn't yellow, the inside flesh however is BRIGHT YELLOW and it even tastes different than a traditional watermelon.

I'm gonna take a wild guess that you didn't know about yellow watermelons either.I wouldn't have known about these rare yellow watermelons either, had I not purchased one at Sam's Club a few years ago by accident.

It was any old summer day and I was craving the sweetest watermelon on the vine, only to get home to be severely disappointed the minute I cut into it. My first and only thought was this watermelon is clearly rotten, although it didn't smell bad.

Come to find out, Yellow Watermelons are called Yellow Crimson Watermelons and they have a very sweet-honey flavor!

I didn't try the Yellow Crimson but I'm curious if you've ever tried one. If so, how was it? Did you like it more or less than traditional watermelon?
