Keep these points in your mind the next time you are out to buy a watermelon, and you will surely reward yourself with a sweet, juicy, delicious fruit.
When you take a look at the watermelons, watch out for the white spots. These spots are natural and denote the area where the watermelon was rested on the ground. Although every watermelon has a white spot, the best ones have orange-yellow or creamy yellow spots.
Webbing is an indication of the number of times the bees came in contact with the watermelon. The more the pollination, the sweeter the watermelon turns out to be.
Boy or Girl
You might be surprised to know that watermelons have genders. The ones that are tall and elongated are called the ‘boy’ watermelons and the ones that are round and stout are called the ‘girl’ watermelons. The girl watermelons are sweeter but the boy watermelons have more water.
If we go by common sense, the bigger the watermelon, the better it is. But that’s not really true. The best watermelons are average in size. Don’t pick too small or too large watermelon.
The tail is how we judge the ripeness of a watermelon. If the tail is green, that means the watermelon was picked too early and wouldn’t taste good. The best ones are those who have a dried tail.
