Watermelon More Nutritious at Room Temperature

Watermelon is rich in antioxidants such as lycopene and glutathione. A study by the U.S. Department of Agriculture found that watermelon stored at 70 degrees (typical room temperature) had 40% more lycopene and 50% more beta carotene than watermelon stored in a refrigerator. In the fridge, watermelon also decays faster. If you want cold watermelon, put it in the refrigerator right before eating to maximize nutritional value!
