C.H. Robinson Worldwide Inc. has created a mobile app detailing the uses and health benefits of watermelons.
Eden Prairie, Minn.-based C.H. Robinson’s Watermelon that Wows! app is part of the company’s Pink Ribbon Watermelon program, according to a company news release.
Available for download at the Apple App Store, Watermelon that Wows! features a variety of different activities, including instructions for carving ornate watermelon centerpieces, watermelon recipes and a “Save the Watermelon” seed-spitting game, where users help a farmer protect his watermelon crop from vermin.
All profits from the sale of the app will be donated to breast cancer research organizations.
Since 2008, C.H. Robinson’s Pink Ribbon Watermelon program has raised more than $680,000 for breast cancer research.
