Watermelons are not only delicious to enjoy, they also can be transformed into a center-piece to adorn your table. It will be the talk of the party, as others wonder, 'how did you do that'. Use the watermelon fruit to create many and varied watermelon recipes, as well as adding to a fresh fruit bowl, that is both healthy and refreshing. Great for outdoor parties as well as indoors.
