How to Pick a Watermelon
Nothing provides more refreshment on a hot summer day than a cold, juicy watermelon. To pick out the best one at your local farmers market or roadside stand, make sure it’s heavy for its size with a yellow underside and a dried stem.
Store whole watermelons at room temperature, but refrigerate cut watermelon and use it up within five days.
Short on time while prepping a watermelon recipe? Buy pre-cut chunks of watermelon in your grocery store’s produce department.
