Did you know watermelons last longer at room temperature than they do in the fridge? It is true and it’s wiser wise to store them in a closet than in the fridge. Imagine that? The report and study proves that the nutritional value of a watermelon is better after being stored at room temp as opposed to in the refrigerator.
The USDA United States Department of Agriculture revealed better antioxidant and nutritional value. Watermelons have all kinds of great rigid in them such as beta carotene and lycopene. At 70-75 degrees the levels of good stuff was 140% greater than at 41-55 levels. Two to three weeks, but if you keep them in the refrigerator the decay and loss or nutrients can start in about a week.
Some cultures eat more watermelon than others and scientists have found that their incidence of cancer is much less. A lot of folks swear by watermelons and it turns out they are right, watermelons are very great for the human body and human health. There is quite a lot of advice on the CDC site about this as a matter of fact.
