How to choose a good watermelon
You can go home and cut the watermelon for dinner and the color is pale, it is not at all very juicy and tasteless. Is there anything more frustrating?! Here are some tips for choosing delicious watermelon:
- It looks a little hollow when you tap on it, not completely hollow or completely full
- A good creamy yellow spot where it rested on the ground – if it is white or not, it is not ripe
- Bee stings everywhere – these are the little brown spots all over which are the pollination points where the sugar leaches, meaning the perfect sweet melon
- Feels heavy for its size – if it’s heavier than it looks, it’s juicy
Hope this helps make your watermelon decisions less anxious in the future!
