I think if i had to chose my favorite fruit, it would be watermelon. I LOVE a good watermelon, and since I am adding one to my cart every time I go shopping, I have done my research on choosing a perfect watermelon. Unless you are an expert in watermelon acoustics, stop being the crazy person in the produce aisle knocking on all the melons! Here are my easy tips to choosing a perfect watermelon every time!
1. Pick a heavy one!
The most ripe and sweetest watermelons will contain the most water and should be relatively heavy for it’s size. If you want to get technical you could weigh the melons on the scale at the grocery store, but I just pick up a few watermelons until I find one that sort of surprises me with how heavy it is. That is the one I want to take home.
2. Check for a white or yellow spot
You’ll want a watermelon that has a nice white or light yellow spot where it was sitting on the ground while it was growing. If there is no nice white or light yellow spot and it is still green, that melon was picked before it was really ripe, pass that one up.
That’s pretty much it! Obviously you want to make sure you aren’t picking a watermelon with any major blemishes or bruises, but beside that, those two simple rules should help you chose an awesome watermelon every time!
