Big sexy watermelons are the new Viagra

Forget whispering discreetly to the pharmacist for something to perk the little feller up a bit with, only for them to screech out over the tanoy for 'a packet of Viagra for the man with erectile disfunction at the front of the queue.' A trip to your local fruit and veg market could do it. Because oddly enough, the big cuddly watermelon is the new viagra.

According to research in Science Daily the watermelon contains a nutrient called citroline, which helps relax blood vessels (like Viagra does) and pumps up libido. "We've always known that watermelon is good for you, but the list of its very important healthful benefits grows longer with each study." says Bhimu Patil, director of Texas Fruit and Vegatable Improvement Centre.

But before you nip out for a 'couple of bits from the supermarket' and come back hulking two great watermelons under your arm, remember this. Research shows that the part of the sexy fruit most packed with libidous juices is not the juicy pink bit, but the unappetising rind. So if you're brave enough desperate enough to knaw on a chunk of watermelon skin without waiting until a GM modified 'rind edible' one comes on the market...then you probably deserve a free pack of Viagra in the post!
