Watermelons are an essential fruit to eat during the summer, but unfortunately many people end up with poorly chosen watermelons. Here are a few tips on getting the best watermelon.

  • Look at its belly, the underside of the watermelon (yellow is ripe, white is unripe)
  • Knock on it, if it makes a hollow sound then it is ripe
  • Sniff it, if it smells sweet then it is ripe
  • Squeeze it, it shouldn’t be hard as rock but the skin shouldn’t be soft also
