The residents of Kibwezi, Kenya are fond of all kinds of fruits but they refuse to consume water melons for some reasons. Those who raise them have no market in their own place. They have to take them to the main highway linking the capital Nairobi to the seaport of Mombasa.
These fruits are not eaten by people around here, says Mr Kyalo David with a stock of water melons along Nairobi Mombasa road. There, travelers by them.
Veronica Ndiuku lives in Kibwezi and have planted water melons herself. Despite that, she is not ready to eat any: You know these are new fruits, our bodies are not used to them.That is why we do not rush to consume them, she says. See link for video.
crapper, I here I thought ...
Not my favorite either.
Too bad he wasn’t wearing an 0bama t-shirt. That would’ve been priceless.
Probably too sweet and makes you go to the bathroom too often.
Probably because watermelons are one of the most disgusting foods in the world. Blechhhh!
YOU ARE NOT RIGHT IN THE HEAD!!
It's strawberries that are the worst thing that grows. Nasty taste and little grit things stuck all over them. Ugh!
The little gritty things are seeds...strawberry is the only fruit to grow it’s seeds on the outside of the pulp.
