Korean Watermelon Summer 2013

One of the most iconic summer fruits is the watermelon (수박), even the name sounds refreshing. Now we’re mid way into June and summer is in full swing, we went down to our local street market to find our first watermelon. The watermelon season started a few weeks ago and so the prices for maybe at their lowest. We found a nice condition 6kg one for just ₩8,000.

Taste & Extra

A nice sweet watermelon without to many seeds. Many people have commented in the past that Korea has some of the best watermelons in the world. So if you’re in Korea this summer (or any summer in the future) you should try some watermelon.
