❁ Choose a watermelon that is uniform in shape and heavy for its size. The dark green skin might have lighter green stripes.

❁ Look for a creamy yellow spot on the underside. It becomes more yellow as the melon ripens.

❁ Avoid melons with soft spots, dents or cracks.

❁ Flesh of cut watermelon should look juicy and smooth. Melons cut into halves or quarters or containers of ready-to-eat cubed melon may be available. These generally cost a little more than whole melons.

❁ Watch for locally grown watermelon from July to September. They might be cheaper, taste better and last longer.
