By the way: 

Originally from Africa and categorized as both a fruit and vegetable, watermelons are hydrating, sweet, and rich in nutrients. A yellow watermelon is basically the same as one of any other color — it just has yellow flesh on the inside instead of the more common pink or red color. The fruit is generally grown in warm regions and, depending on the variety, can be as large as 30 lbs. (13.6 kg) once fully grown. People use the yellow fruit the same way they’d use any other type, although watermelons of this color can be more difficult to find.

Why Is It Yellow ?

Watermelons that are pink or red on the inside contain a powerful antioxidant called lycopene, which is perhaps best known for making tomatoes red. Yellow watermelons do not contain this antioxidant, so they don't have the same reddish tint.

Flavor: Yellow watermelons are known for their extremely sweet taste, which some people say tastes a bit like honey. Not all melons will share this sweetness, however, and the flavor often depends on the conditions in which they were grown. Watermelons grown in poor conditions may not taste as good or as sweet, and those that are picked before they are fully ripe often have a weak flavor.
