Lycopene grows in the watermelon when ripe. Lycopene an organic compound belonging to the isoprenoid series and responsible for the red colour of the watermelon tomato, the hips and haws of the wild rose, and many other fruits.

Food are the only thing that can be differntiate, Definately the ingredents and spices and Oil may be differentiate but the grains are always the same harvested from the same field, Since the ppl working as waiter are served the same food as to their customers as they can describe the contents and taste to their customers.

Have you ever hiked across an alpine meadow or traversed a steep talus slope in high mountain ranges and noticed pinkish patches, or streaks of red, on the snowbanks? This phenomenon is especially common during the summer months in the Sierra Nevada of California where snow has lingered from winter storms, mainly at altitudes of 10,000 to 12,000 feet. Compressing the snow with your boot leaves a distinct footprint the color of watermelon pulp. The snow even has a fresh watermelon scent and is sometimes called "watermelon snow." Walking in pink snow often results in a temporary discoloration of your clothing, such as bright red soles and pinkish pant cuffs. There are unconfirmed reports that consuming "generous quantities" of pink snow may cause diarrhea, a rather distressing situation above timberline.
