Go With The 2-Finger Trick To Pick Out The Best Watermelon Every Time
When you are picking out a watermelon at the supermarket, you can't tell if it looks good inside. Luckily, there’s an easy visual trick you can use to pick the perfect one.
All you need to do to find a ripe watermelon is to measure the rind’s markings. A good melon will have green stripes that are the width of your pointer and index fingers together.
A ripe watermelon will also feel heavier than it looks. This means it has a high water content and will be juicy.
Ideally, you'll want to choose a melon with a rich yellow spot, because that means it was left to grow for an appropriate amount of time before harvesting.
