Tips For How To Choose Your Watermelon

In conclusion, you will notice several varieties of watermelon in the market. We recommend as always that you choose non-GMO and organic. Furthermore, pick a dull looking watermelon over the shiny ones since they are usually under ripe. In addition, you will see a light colored spot where the melon was resting on the ground. If that is bright white or if you don’t see it, it wasn’t ripe when it was picked and it won’t be sweet.
