Most watermelons are cylindrical or round, with mottled or striped green skin, and a pink to red centre. Other varieties such as Champagne watermelons (with golden flesh) are sometimes available. Watermelons are about 90% water, and 8 to 12% sugar. Many watermelons have dark brown seeds, but in recent years seedless watermelons have become extremely common in Australia. These may have some small white residual seeds.
Watermelons are available all year round, peaking in Summer, from December to May.
