Watermelons are a popular fruit of summer after mango. But, beware of watermelons if they are quite red, and do not get tempted to buy them soon. Because, watermelon sellers have started injecting artificial red color into the fruit to give it a solid red colour. Health experts say that these colours are toxic in nature and may cause serious health diseases. Normally, fruits get ripened by exposing them to carbide that generates ethylene gas which gives out heat helping the fruit to ripen fast and that too in proper shape. This new ploy of fruit sellers in case of watermelon will also help in getting the fruit to round shape.
