CHOOSING A WATERMELON
Summer is the time for watermelons! Choose your watermelon wisely for the best flavor and nutrition.
- Buy your watermelons from farmer’s market (or a farm, if you can) where they pick them when they are ripe.
- Check to see the watermelon has a yellow or light spot on it. (As watermelons sit on the ground and ripen, they develop this spot). If the watermelon doesn’t have this spot, it may well have been picked before it was ripe.
- Tap the watermelon with your fingers – you want to hear a sound like something that is hollow. The sound should not be dull, low, or flat (you will know).
