Watermelon is finally back in season at the Market! We’ve been waiting all summer for this juicy and delicious treat so here are some quick tips to pick out a great watermelon!

  1. Look for a symmetrical, smooth watermelon. A misshappen watermelon could indicate too little water when the melon was growing.
  2. Look for the “field spot”, where the watermelon was growing on the ground. The spot should be a decent size and yellow, not white.
  3. Make sure the skin is dull. Shiny skin could indicate an unripe melon.
  4. Give it a tap, a good watermelon should sound hollow.
  5. Lift it up, make sure its a good weight for its size.

If the watermelon passes these tests, it promises to be a tasty one!
