There’s Going To Be A World-Wide Rush On Watermelons!

Published by at 10:12 am under All General Discussions

I expect to see a rush coming on watermelons and a world wide watermelon shortage on this news:

Experts claim that the red-fleshed fruit contains an ingredient that affects the body’s blood vessels in the same way as when a man takes the sex drug.

Researchers believe that the juicy fruit could be used to help men who suffer from erectile dysfunction.

Watermelons are loaded with an organic compound called citrulline that can trigger blood vessels to relax, much like Viagra does, according to scientists from Texas A&M University in the United States.

Is this April 1st? As some noted watermelon is the fruit of choice on the 4th of July. Doesn’t matter, I bet if I try to get some at the store today they will be all sold out. Time to open a watermelon farm. (Click image to see original post regarding the ‘Lady in the Melon’)

    Maybe that is why they cost as much as Viagra now.

    I put a garden out this year and I have a lot of watermelons out there. Maybe I should get a mean dog to guard them.
