Examine the field spot

  • You might have seen those light spots on the covering on watermelon. Those are called as field spots. Field spot is the part which was in contact with the ground throughout its growth period.
  • If the field spot is creamy yellow in color, then it means that it is a ripe watermelon.
  • If its white in color, then it indicates that watermelon is picked before time.

Go for uniform (shaped) watermelons

  • Avoid choosing those watermelons which have cuts/bruises/dents.
  • Bumped watermelons should not be eaten, as it shows that watermelon might be overexposed to the sunshine in its growing period, which is unhealthy and won’t have the desired nutrients.

Heavy ones are always the best!

  • Choose a big and heavy watermelon. This means that it is ripe and full of water! Those are best ones!
