August is the perfect time to enjoy delicious local watermelons. This sweet treat is not only great tasting, but also has many health benefits including being the lycopene leader in fresh produce. Maryland watermelons are vine-ripened and grown by about 50 farm families. Look for Maryland watermelons in the local section of your grocery store or from a farm stand, farmer’s market, or an on-farm store.
