First Watermelon of the Season

Published in: Daily Photo

Oh, sweet, sweet watermelon. How I’ve missed you!

To pick a good watermelon…

  • Look it over: Look for a firm, symmetrical watermelon free from bruises, cuts or dents.
  • Lift it up: The watermelon should be heavy for its size. Watermelon is 92% water.
  • Turn it over: The underside of the watermelon should have a creamy yellow patch from where it sat on the ground and ripened in the sun.

  2. Ahh watermelon! I had some last week, but it wasn’t so good yet, so I’m going to wait for a while before getting another one.

    I knock on the watermelon to see if it’s good! If it has a really dull sound, it means it’s very juicy. If it sounds too “crispy” then well, it’s not very juicy!

    Can’t wait to get my hands on a nice ripe watermelon. We still have a little while to wait out here in NJ, but soooooooooon.
