Watermelon

Just a quick question.
Obviously watermelon is good as one of the 5-a-day, but I was wondering how it is for sugar/GI in part of your diet?
Just asking because here in Mexico they are 10p per Kilo and they are beautifully ripe!!
 
Many Thanks

    Yeah that's what I thought! Oh well I've eaten half a watermelon across 5 days and damn it was tasty, especially now as it's back up to 35+ Celsius again...

    Watermelons are about 95% water, so the GI isn't that important.
