A Cypriot summer is not complete without watermelons - and in Cyprus they tend to grow rather large!

The red soil villages of the Ammochostos (Famagusta) region are the main watermelon growers and you will often see trucks of watermelons parked up in the streets, with local growers selling their juicy crop.

Whilst it may seem an unusual pairing, watermelon is commonly eaten with Halloumi cheese as a traditional summer breakfast or light supper.
