The color is equally unusual, because it can change from light gray-green to straw yellow-cream based on the maturation stage; according to the varieties, even in full ripeness, some darker green rays that start from the petiole can be found. The peel is medium-thick. The flesh has a light orange color, sometimes it turns to a "salmon" color. The placental cavity where the seeds are contained is very small and it occupies less than 25% of the entire fruit, which makes it a good use as a slice on the plate. The fruit is generally evaluated as "unusual" by the consumer, as it does not immediately attract for its characteristics of smooth skin and light colors, but precisely for this reason it stands out in a unique way from all the other melons on the market.

Nectarines are nearly identical to peaches in both their genetic makeup and nutritional profile. The most obvious differences are their skin and flavor. Peaches are covered with fuzz, while nectarines have thin, smooth skin. Nectarines also have slightly firmer flesh and a more sweet-tart flavor. Although their flavors are distinctive, nectarines and peaches can often be interchanged in recipes.

Watermelon is a sweet and refreshing low calorie summer snack. It provides hydration and also essential nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Along with cantaloupe, honeydew, and cucumber, watermelons are a member of the Cucurbitaceae family.

Watermelon is around 90% water, which makes it useful for staying hydrated in the summer. It can also satisfy a sweet tooth with its natural sugars.
Watermelon also contains antioxidants. These substances can help remove molecules known as free radicals, or reactive species, from the body. The body produces free radicals during natural processes, such as metabolism. They can also develop through smoking, air pollution, stress, and other environmental pressures.
If too many free radicals stay in the body, oxidative stress can occur. This can result in cell damage and may lead to a range of diseases, such as cancer and heart disease.
The body can remove some free radicals naturally, but dietary antioxidants support this process.
