a $50,000 machine to peal a 5 dollar fruit that's rich.
The only thing I've ever done with watermelons was a couple of summers I used to haul them as a teenager. or tossed them in a bonfire to wait for them to explode so guys and their dates could go out in the woods to get a piece " of watermelon that is" other than using them as targets for our shotguns. Never found much use for them otherwise.

I've always thought that most watermelons like pumpkins were mostly left to rot then used as hog food no need for peeling.
Last year the wife asked if I was going to plant watermelon and pumpkins in the garden. I said no I can only eat so many pumpkin pies so not worth the space and you probably wouldn't eat more than 1 or 2 melons the whole summer and we don't have any hogs.
Maybe there are a lot of people who actually eat watermelons I'm not one of them.
A grocery store near us gets a tub pallet of watermelons when they come in season and if you watch the back door over 80% of each shipment winds up in the dumpster guess I'm not the only one in a county of 2000 who does not eat them.
It would be some restaurant to need one of those.
We have known for decades that 3 red foods have great benefit in reducing heart disease & reducing blood pressure by way of anti-oxidants, beta corrotine,amino acids etc. I recal a gal in Tx sprouting the benefits of watermelon & apparently the white part is good for us too: as kids, we were told that it was poisonous & now Tx scientists say it helps penile erectile dyspunction (wonder if it helps dyslexia). Science is dynamic & advice often changes direction 180 deg.
Years ago, farmers would not stop until they killed a black snake using boiling water to expet them from a hiding place. they didn't worry so much about browns which are way more venemous. Ignorance of risk. (Here, it has been reported, we have the top 10 venomous land snakes & blacks dont even get close.)
