Pick up a giant watermelon at the grocery store and what's inside is a bit of a mystery. Knowing the answer to that can be incredibly useful when you're making a recipe that calls for a certain amount of the fruit. So, exactly how many cups of fruit are in there?

Pounds of Watermelon to Cups

According to the Watermelon Board, an average large watermelon weighs about 20 pounds and contains roughly 32 cups of cubed fruit. That means one pound of watermelon is equal to 1.6 cups of cubed watermelon or, in more cooking-friendly terms, just over 1 1/2 cups of fruit.

1 pound of watermelon = 1 1/2 cups of cubed watermelon
