I like it, but my sister won't touch the stuff, so you are not alone.

We get one a year I would guess. Of course we like it, but not among or favorite fruits. Mostly I like it in fruit salad. I rarely just eat a piece or two, would never think of eating a 1/2 or 1/4 of one.

I don't like it either, to me it has no taste, just sweet and watery.

I HATE WATERMELON. In all my life I was alone in my dislike for this summertime necessity. Then I found an uncle who hated it. Really hated it, would not eat it. Just like me.

Why do some people love it so much? Why do some (only one person now? since my uncle passed away) despise it, can't even eat a single mouthful off the stuff? Is it genetic? It doesn't taste good to me and it has a rough mushy texture and it's watery. Now cantaloupe is another story.

If it actually tasted good, I'd be right there, spitting out the seeds, juice running down my face. Is there another person who hates the stuff?
I've been bringing home watermelons constantly for my wife.

She asks........." aren't you having any" ?

I say...."no'

Just don't care for watermelon.
