Model Answer:
Greece is a land of diversity. People love to take various types of fruits after almost each of their meals. So, a large number of fruits are available and most of them they appear in seasons. But some of the fruits are available round the year. Watermelon is one of the seasonal fruits that is loved by all. Thank you for the question.

In fact, every Greek loves to take fruits as desserts and thus there are a number of fruits are available in the land. The seasonal fruits are more popular than the other types of fruits. Watermelon is one of the seasonal fruits that is available during summer. It is a juicy fruit that provides a different type of pleasure to the consumers. They take it in different ways. Sometimes people prefer to have it by a slice or sometimes they take it by making juice. Besides, some of the people love to take it in their cocktail.

Some people like watermelon more than any other fruits for many reasons. First of all, this is a type of fruit that has several health benefits. A major part of the fruit contains water and thus it helps to hydrate the body. The fruit gained popularity for its taste and it refreshes within a short time. Further, the fruit contains fewer calories and enriched with vitamins and other healthy compounds. Watermelon is popular in Greece for another reason – it is available everywhere and cheaper in price than the other seasonal fruits. Around 92 percent of the fruits come with water that helps to replenish the lost energy. Besides, the sweet flavour of the fruit is another reason to attract the people. When someone takes the fruit, it helps to make them feel full of vigour and energy. The nutritious value could not be ignored as well. Based on all such beneficial factors, the fruit is hugely popular in the country.

Of course, I like watermelon. In fact, this is one of my preferred fruits during summer. It comes with numerous health benefits. My parents also inspire me on having watermelon as much as I can during the summer days. I prefer to have the fruit in the form of juice than the slice. But this is a bit complex process. To prepare watermelon juice, you need to cut the fruit into pieces and then blend them. Add some sugar if you prefer to bring more taste. But I feel trouble while sorting out the seeds from the fruit. But after completing everything when I drink the juice, I feel a heavenly pleasure. Sometimes, I take the juice with me at my college and drink them when I need. In fact, I love the juice more than any other thing and my mum helps me preparing it.

Watermelon is a popular fruit in my country for many reasons. In summer, the temperature level rises more than expected. So, people are in need to hydrate their bodies. Drinking water is the only solution but it is not preferable to many of them. So, when they are seeking the alternative, watermelon comes in the first position on their search list. Actually, water has no taste at all. But the fruit is different from water. It has a delicious flavour and satisfies the thirst. Moreover, it refills necessary vitamins essential to control your physical activities. Considering such positive aspects, watermelon is a popular fruit in Greece.
