☑NOTE

◾I have not sieved the juice as got almost seedless watermelon and I used a dedicated juicer blender, which does the blending work perfectly so skipped the sieving part. But it is advisable to strain the juice as very rare to get the seedless watermelon...

How to find out - whether watermelon is injected with harmful chemicals or artificial coloring? 

◾Place a small cube of watermelon in a glass. Add 1tbsp of white vinegar and shake up. Wait for about 30 seconds or so. If the vinegar stays clear, then there is no artificial coloring.
