Discover Watermelon fruit puree: Health benefits, cocktail recipes and more...

Watermelon is an interesting flavour, it is not always the easiest to work with, as many bartenders will tell you. Although if you can get it right, it can make some tasty and unique drinks.

The watermelon has a very interesting history in fact. Believed to have originated in Egypt up to 5,000 years ago, today it is one of the world’s most popular fruits.

ODK’s watermelons are all grown and harvested from the sun drenched orchards of the Mediterranean island of Sicily, where they are immediately bottled into our tasty ODK Watermelon Fruit Puree.

Did you know the humble watermelon contained all these health benefits?

  • Watermelon only contains 46 calories per cup and is high in vitamin C, vitamin A and many other healthy plant compounds.
  • It seems right for its name but the watermelon will actually help you remain hydrated. The watermelon is 92% water!
  • It is very good for your skin and hair.
  • Watermelon is also high in fibre as well as water. Fibre and water are two key ingredients for a healthy digestive system. A watermelon cocktail could be the perfect after dinner drink …

The best way to experience the ODK fruit puree is to experiment with them. Try our purees with desserts, breakfasts, hot and cold drinks and more.
