5 Tips to pick the sweetest watermelon

SHARE

Your love for watermelons never goes old. But the skill to pick the best watermelon in the market comes with years of scrutinizing every part of the fruit. Here are five tips to help you find the best watermelon in the market without slicing one:

1. FIELD SPOT

Field spots are the white spots you find on the peel of a watermelon. It is found on the places where the watermelon rested on the ground, and is ripe and sweet inside. These spots could be anything from creamy-yellow to orange.

2. WEBBING

It shows the amount of bees touched the flower. The more you see the pollination, the better it is.

3. BOY OR A GIRL?

Watermelons also have genders. The “boy” watermelon is more elongated and the “girl” watermelons are round and stout. And of course, the girls are sweeter.

4. SIZE

Change your notion of size and pleasure. Biggest watermelons are the biggest mistake you’ll make while picking one. Go for the smaller ones.

5. TAIL

The tail of a watermelon shows how ripe it is. A green tail shows that the watermelon was picked too soon. The dried tails show that they are ripe enough.
