Yellow Watermelon and AFAM

Watermelon and the rhyme

One rhyme on watermelon which my son sings when he relishes this juicy fruit is
Watermelon, watermelon,
Tastes so yummy, tastes so yummy,
Green on the outside,
Red on the inside,
With black seeds, with black seeds.

Akash refused to accept yellow melon simply because watermelon was not red inside! How will he when he sings the above song(?) where it says watermelon is red inside! Probably I have to change the rhyme to make him accept yellowmelon. hahhaaaa... the rhyme for seedless yellow melon may go something like this............

Watermelon, watermelon,
Tastes so yummy, tastes so yummy,
Green on the outside,
Yellow on the inside,
No seeds, No seeds easy to eat!

@ Usha,
It was my first time with yellow watermelon in Singapore. The sweetness of the melon, rich taste of honey with subtle amount of spice resulted in a tasty juice. Give it a try with red w.melon if yellow w.melon is not available.

The taste is near to red melon. The juice is very refreshing, give a try with red melon, if yellow melon is not availble.
