Finding a Ripe Watermelon
A ripe watermelon will have a rich green color. Avoid melons with bruises or scars. Skip the ones with lumps or odd shapes. (Unless, they were grown to a square watermelon.)
Watermelons contain water. Ripe water melons contain more water. So if you have two melons of about the same size, pick the heavier of the two.
Check the underside for a creamy yellowish discoloration. If the spot is white or greenish, the melon was picked too soon.
Experienced melon thumpers, know that the sound tells all. The sound is affected by the water content with affects weight. Of course, the only way to develop an “ear” is to thump the melon and immediately slice it open and eat it. Then remember only the sound of the ones that tasted good.
