HOW TO PICK A WATERMELON
Summertime is here! And when I think of summer, I can’t help but think of a big ‘ol sweet and juicy watermelon.
Today I’m going to show you how to pick a watermelon. And not just any old watermelon. The perfect watermelon. You know – one that is super sweet and oh so juicy. Oh yes.
There’s a few things to look for when you’re out shopping for a watermelon. If you follow these tips, you’ll get a super sweet, ripe and juicy watermelon every time.
How To Pick a Watermelon:
#1: Look for the yellow field spot.
That yellow spot means the watermelon was on the vine getting sweet and ripe and it was picked at the perfect time. You want that creamy yellow spot! If it doesn’t have a yellow spot, put it back.
#2: Make sure it’s heavy.
Pick the heaviest watermelon in the bunch. This means it’s super juicy.
#3: Look for white scars and brown dots or lines.
If you see any small white scars or brown dots/lines, this is evidence that the watermelon was so sweet and yummy that insects were trying to get some, too. You’ll know it’s ripe and sweet if you see these scars and lines.
#4: Go for the dull watermelon.
A shiny watermelon is an underripe watermelon. You want the dull one – that means it’s sweet and ripe.
#5: Look for the darkest skin.
Dark skin suggests a sweeter watermelon.
There you go – your 5 tips for picking the perfect watermelon this summer 🙂 Enjoy!
