It’s finally summer, and one of the quintessential elements of summer is watermelon. But if you’re like me, you aren’t really sure how to choose the best one.
Here are a few tips from Natasha Haynes, Extension agent and host of The Food Factor.
The watermelon should be firm and well-rounded.
It should feel heavy. The heavier it is, the riper it will be.
Look for a deep yellow field spot.
The Garden Tabloid also has information on raising watermelons, as well as other vegetables and fruits.
