Watermelons. It’s such a great summertime food. When you look at one, that’s the season that comes to mind. Hot days and delicious watermelons. But how do you pick a watermelon that is among the tastiest out there. Just running out and grabbing any old one is going to get you some annoyed looks. But fear not. You don’t have to go to any special courses. Just follow these rules and everyone will love you.
The major thing to look for is a watermelon with a big brown spot. Yes, this is one time when you want an imperfect-looking item. A big spot means that it spent a long time in the field. You want this. You also want to look for a lot of webbing on its surface. That means a lot of bees touched this watermelon. This is a good thing. That’s just the beginning of the things you should look for.
The next thing to look for is its gender. Boy watermelons are taller and have more water in them. Girl watermelons are rounder in size, smaller, and are sweeter. You also want to look at how large it is. Medium-sized watermelons are generally the best. I’m not just saying that because I’m trying to save you from getting a hernia if you lug a bigger one around. Finally, look at its tail. If its green, it was picked way to early. Just like you wouldn’t take a green banana, don’t take a green-tailed watermelon.
In the video, we see a woman explaining the first ways of finding the right watermelon that were explained in the second paragraph. She then shows how to cut a watermelon properly – cut the rind around it first and then cut it in half before cutting everything into cubes. Finally, she suggests how to make a watermelon smoothie (hint: freeze the squares- that makes it the ice cubes). All this made me want to go out and buy a watermelon now.
