There is only one fruit in our opinion that really shouts summer, and it is watermelon! You can be sure that it will be served at every backyard barbeque, or summer party this season. We will bet that everyone has a childhood watermelon memory: from mom serving ice cold slices after a hard play day to spitting seeds at each other and hoping they would stick to your friend’s forehead!
Every Fourth of July we would go to our aunt's house and have the biggest celebration ever. They were the owners of our family grocery store, The Mohegan Market, so there was always so much food! All kinds of hotdogs from every company, the best juicy hamburgers, tender grilled pork ribs, and of course the sweetest watermelon from Uncle John’s favorite produce supplier, called Sweet Life! In those days, the typical watermelon was a very long oval shape and Uncle John would always do a stunning carving, which doubled as a bowl for the cut pieces of melon and the perfect showstopper centerpiece!
