I love sweet firm watermelon. Back in the early 80's I would have drive thru the watermelon capital on the world when going home from college. You could buy melons off any street corner for a dollar apiece. I buy 10 melons and bring them home. Give me a melon some salt and I was in heaven.

Yes. I don't like watermelon. I hate the fibrous texture of it. I also do not like the taste. Its not a strong taste, which I enjoy.

As a kid I loved it, then early in my adult life I decided I really didn't care for it much, now we are back to liking it, but still not crazy over it; certainly not my favorite fruit.

I've never been a huge fan of watermelon or melons in general, but I don't hate them.

I'm on the no thanks bandwagon - watermelon makes me feel physically ill. I used to be just ok about it, nothing really special but didn't mind having it, until one day I realized it was what was making me feel destroyed all afternoon.

Tuscan melons and canary melons are far more flavorful and don't give me the severe pain I experience after eating watermelon. Good thing melon season is rolling in.

I also don’t like watermelon I just find it too watery and annoying to eat cuz it drips all over my mouth so I have to cut it into mouth sized pieces which takes me longer to eat, the taste I just find very bland idk but everyone’s always telling me it’s very good for me so I reluctantly eat it.
