How to pick a watermelon

If you are looking for a sweet and good watermelon at the store, you need to know if a watermelon is ripe.

Keep these two things in mind when choosing a watermelon:

  • Don’t pick the biggest watermelon, as the best watermelons are average-sized.
  • Look at its tail. If it’s green, it’s not ripe. Watermelons with the best taste are the ones with dried tails.

  1. Dare I admit, I have never made anything with watermelon other than just eating it plain. Each recipe on here looks great. I will be starting with the smoothie and the salad 🙂

  2. All of those watermelon beverages sound so refreshing for summertime sipping! I love watermelon on summer salads, so I’m definitely going to try that salad.

  3. I am now craving a watermelon salad with a popsicle to follow washed down with watermelon lemonade. I have only ever used watermelon as a fruit to eat… but not any more!
