LAHORE, Pakistan – I don’t know about others, but I love, love, love watermelons.
Ahh! They are so red, so juicy, so yummy, especially when chilled.
I am a total fan, and nowadays, you can see tons of watermelons everywhere in Lahore.
The melons here are part of the Sunday bazaar, and most weigh 3 or 4 kilograms – about 7.5 pounds – but there are heavier ones for those who want them.
They cost 20 Pakistani rupees per kilogram, or about 21 cents in the U.S. per 2.2 pounds.
