Nothing is as refreshing as the sweet, juicy taste of a watermelon on a summer’s day. However, a watermelon can only be as good as the one you choose in the market. You may think that choosing an excellent watermelon depends on chance, but in fact, there are several ways to detect the perfect watermelon.
In addition, we have compiled the best tips to choose other fruits (and even to last longer). We hope they are useful and informative!
1) How to Choose and Cut the Perfect Watermelon
These key tips from an experienced farmer will help you choose the perfect watermelon, all the time.
2) Field Spot
When you see watermelons, the first thing that stands out are those strange white spots. However, these spots (called field spots) are quite natural. The field stain is the area where the watermelon rested on the ground. While each watermelon has a field stain, the best watermelons have creamy yellow or even orange-yellow spots. Go for the gold.
The tissue of a watermelon indicates the number of times the bees touched the flower. The more pollinated, the sweeter the watermelon.
4) Boy or Girl?
Maybe you did not know this but, but watermelons have a gender. Watermelons “children” are taller and more elongated, while “girls” are more rounded and more robust. The boy watermelons are juicier, while the girl watermelons are sweeter.
Our common sense tells us that the bigger the better. So, we can think that we should get the value of our money and buy the largest watermelon that we can transport in our cars, but in reality, the best watermelons are of medium size. Do not look too small or too big, look for the middle point. Size Matters.
The tail of a watermelon indicates its maturity. A green tail indicates that it was picked too early and will not taste good. Go for the watermelons that have dried tails to get the best flavor. You can not judge a book by its cover, but you can judge a watermelon by its shell.
