  • Seedless
  • Seedless watermelons were initially developed in 1939 by Japanese scientists who were able to create seedless triploid hybrids which remained rare initially because they did not have sufficient disease resistance. (wikipedia.org)

  • lycopene
  • Recent studies have made it clear that, on average, red-fleshed watermelon is more concentrated in lycopene than red tomatoes. (whfoods.com)
  • While both foods are top-rated sources of this carotenoid, red-fleshed watermelons typically average between 4-5 milligrams of lycopene in every 100 grams (approximately two-thirds cup in volume), while red tomatoes usually contain about 3-4 milligrams per 100 grams (approximately 1/2 cup in volume). (whfoods.com)
  • Moreover, the bioavailable of lycopene from red-fleshed watermelon appears to be greater than its bioavailability from red tomato. (whfoods.com)
  • This greater bioavailability may be to do the presence of cis -isomeric lycopene in watermelon, which is a more readily available form of this carotenoid. (whfoods.com)
  • The amount of lycopene in watermelon can be predicted from variety and from degree of ripening. (whfoods.com)
  • In the identification of Lycopene is a member of the carotenoid family, which is found abundantly in tomatoes, tomato-based products, strawberries, and watermelon and its effect on prostae cancer found that there is insufficient evidence to either support, or refute, the use of lycopene for the prevention of prostate cancer.

  • plant
  • This plant is listed on the Threatened Species Programme of the South African National Biodiversity Institute. (wikipedia.org)
  • The lack of knowledge about the order in general is due to many species being found in countries with limited economic means or unstable political environments, factors unsuitable for plant collection and detailed study. (wikipedia.org)
