  • Serving size: A typical serving size is considered to be one cup (152 grams) of diced watermelon [2].
  • Watermelon variety: Some watermelon varieties may be naturally sweeter than others.

Here's a breakdown of sugar content based on serving size:

  • Per cup (152 grams): 9.42 grams of sugar [2].
  • Per wedge (1/6 of a watermelon, about 286 grams): Around 17.7 grams of sugar [3].

While watermelon does contain sugar, it's important to consider:

  • Natural sugar: The sugar in watermelon is fructose, a natural sugar found in fruits. This is different from added sugars found in processed foods.
  • High water content: Watermelon is about 92% water [4], which makes it a hydrating fruit.
  • Other nutrients: Watermelon also contains vitamins, minerals, and fiber.
