The Top 4 Fruits With The Most Water


by Leslie Gabriel February 23, 2014

Everyone knows that fruits are important for a healthy and balanced diet, but do you know which ones contain the most water by percentage?

When it comes to nutrition and personal hydration … water and fruit go hand in hand, so you know they must be good for you. Here are the four fruits with the most water. Envelope please …

  1. In first place, Watermelon has been a favorite fruit of kids and adults alike for many years. Aptly named since it is 92% water, watermelon is a staple for outdoor picnics and summertime cookouts. Cut large slices and take a bite, or slice into chunks for finger food. Beware, watermelon is known to be messy so have plenty of napkins nearby.  
  2. Tied for first, Strawberries contain 92% water. They are fantastic in smoothies, cereal, or yogurt. Be sure to wash them first, and then slice strawberries into quarters. Although they are much less healthy when they are dipped in chocolate, strawberries always taste great!
  3. Made up of 91% water, Grapefruit come in a not too shabby third place. It is an amazing breakfast or snack food. It can be cut and scooped out with a spoon, or it makes a great addition to any fruit salad. Grapefruit usually comes in two varieties: white and red. Both are tart and will satisfy any sweet tooth.
  4. Cantaloupe rounds out the top four fruits with 90% water. It  is a fruit with a unique taste and is usually found in fruit salads or on the side with breakfast. Cantaloupe is much less messy than watermelon and tastes amazing.

If your taste buds are tingling for some fresh fruit, go to your local market. Fruit is a great way to mix good health and good hydration, so be sure to pick up these yummy hydration fruits next time you are grocery shopping.

Let us know your favorite hydrating fruits.
