Sometimes it can be hard to pick out the perfect watermelon so Sydney shared 3 tips for picking a good watermelon:

  • Make sure there is a yellow spot somewhere on the watermelon (that's where it was sitting on the ground). The brighter and bigger the yellow spot the longer it sat on the ground ripening. If it's white or there is no spot it didn't have enough time ripen.
  • It should be heavy. Heavy watermelons mean they are full of water and ripe.
  • Color. Ripe watermelons are dark green and dull. Shiny and light colored watermelons were picked before they were ripe.
