It can be overwhelming when you’re trying to get your shopping done and need to pick the best watermelon from a sea of other similar ones. How do you choose the best one? We’ve got some tips to help you pick the ripest, sweetest watermelon:
• Exterior should be dull, NOT shiny.
• Shape should be round and even.
• Look for a cream-colored spot on one side - this means it sat in the patch and ripened for some time.
• It should feel heavy for its size. Lift other watermelons up and go with the heavier one if you’re stuck.
• There should be no stem.
