Zatta Melon Info And History
The Zetta melons are the most popular fruit in the world. They have been cultivated since ancient times. There are many varieties of them, but they all share one thing: their large size and sweet taste.
Most people think that the name “zatta” means “small”, but it actually comes from the Arabic word zahra which literally means “big”.
There are two types of zatas: red and yellow. Red ones grow in Africa, Asia and South America. Yellow ones grow mainly in the Caribbean region.
Both kinds of zatas have different shapes, colors and flavors. The best way to tell them apart is by looking at their skin color (red or yellow).
In the past, there were no laws regulating how much land was needed for each type of zatas. However, in the last few decades, farmers started planting zatas with different sizes and shapes. Because of this, the number of varieties has increased dramatically.
The variety known as “cantaloupes” is a kind of yellow zatas. These are grown primarily in Mexico and Central America. The largest one grows up to six feet tall!
Zatas are a good source of beta-carotene, which is important for vision, growth and reproduction. You can eat the flesh or drink the juice. There are three main ways of eating zatas: you can slice them in half, remove the seeds and then eat the flesh; you can slice them into chunks; or you can leave them whole after you remove the seeds.
Despite their large size, many people can finish an entire zatta at one time, especially when they are served chilled. Zatas are very refreshing! There are many recipes using this fruit.
