How to Pick the Perfect Watermelon ~ Mid Week Munchies

With summer upon us and watermelons every where in the grocery stores; I thought I would share my tried and true method for picking the perfect, sweet, juicy watermelon. If your like my house, we love watermelons!! Summer just wouldn't be the same without them, but who wants a yucky, mealy, no-good watermelon.

Tried and True Method: See these little black bits on the scar of the watermelon? Believe it or not...that's sugar. These sugar bits are juice that has made its way out of the watermelon. It tells you the watermelon is sweet and juicy. These sugar bits can also be found on the ends of the watermelon. The more sugar bits the better! I have never picked a watermelon with these sugar bits and EVER been disappointed.

Happy Summer Everyone.

So, I've always looked for a watermelon with the brownish stuff around the black spots, never the black spots. No wonder! I will try out your technique.

my grocer told me that is the bee stings. The more bee stings the sweeter the fruit. They are just showing us by helping bring the sugar out.
