How to pick out a watermelon from the grocery store?
This salad is so much better with a big, juicy, ripe watermelon! Here are some tips on how to pick out a watermelon from the grocery store:
- Look for a large yellow spot on the watermelon’s belly. A ripe watermelon develops a splotch yellow spot on the bottom of the rind where it was resting on the ground as it grew. The yellow color indicates it is ripe.
- Look for an even shape. If it grew all lop sided then it didn’t receive proper sun or rain at some point, which stunted the growing process.
- Feel the weight of your watermelon. It should be heavier than it looks. More water means more yummy juice!
- Knock on that rind and listen!! A ripe watermelon delivers a deep, echoey, hollow sound. An under-ripe or over-ripe melon will have a dull sound.
- Shiny is not better! Shiny watermelons represents are still developing. The dull colored watermelons are ripe.
