During a Hot summer day, all you need is fresh juicy chilled Watermelon or Watermelon juice to relax. While we enjoy our watermelon we never cared about consuming seeds even after we heard an old tale that says if you swallow a watermelon seed, it will grow in your belly. Most of us actually believed it when we were kids, but what if it’s true and we all got tiny watermelons in our belly? What if they are not belly fats but actual watermelon? Lol, just kidding, it’s a myth forever.

It is totally fine if you swallow a watermelon seed or two, there's no need to worry. The saying about a watermelon growing from a seed into a full-size fruit inside your belly is just a myth.

Despite the fact that they won't develop into a watermelon in your belly, numerous individuals still abstain from eating watermelon seeds. On the off chance that you determinedly pick out the seeds from your slice of watermelon, that's fine.

You've presumably seen that most watermelon seeds are black or brown, red, or tan shading. A couple of the little seeds, however, are white. What's the distinction between these seeds? It's only about maturity.

If you don't want to pick out all the seeds when you're eating watermelon, that's fine. Gulping a couple of seeds unquestionably won't hurt you. Truth be told, watermelon seeds can be very nutritious. The key, however, isn't to gulp down them while you're making the most of your watermelon.


Rather, you should spare the seeds with the goal that they can be grown, shelled, and dried— doing so makes a seed's nutrients easier for your body to absorb. You can do this without anyone else's help, or you can purchase shelled and dried watermelon seeds on the web or in certain stores.

As a snack shelled and dried watermelon seeds are great sources of protein. A single, one-ounce serving contains 10 grams of protein. They also contain a variety of other vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B, magnesium, monounsaturated fats, and polyunsaturated fats.

You can eat watermelon seeds raw, straight from the fruit. They're nontoxic, and the seeds won't probably develop in your stomach acid. (Guarantee)
