How to Choose the Best Watermelon


7 Healthy Snacks You Can Eat without WorryFollowing these tips will help you pick the best watermelon available. Just remember, the keys to picking a great watermelon are as easy as 1, 2, 3.

  1. Look the watermelon over, choose a firm, symmetrical watermelon that is free of bruises, cuts and dents.
  2. Lift it up – the watermelon should be heavy for its size. Watermelon is 92% water, that accounts for most of its weight.
  3. Turn it over – on the underside of the watermelon there should be a creamy yellow spot from where it sat on the ground and ripened in the sun.
