Summertime is right around the corner, and you know what that means… it’s WATERMELON SEASON! Watermelons are one of my favorite fruits, and I get so excited every time that watermelon season rolls around. These delicious fruits are not only super sweet and perfectly refreshing during the warm summer months, but are loaded with nutrients as well. They’re the perfect healthy treat!
In this post, I’ll be sharing my top tips for picking the perfect watermelons every time. These tips are foolproof, and I promise, if you follow them exactly, you’ll end up with the perfect, sweet, juiciest watermelons every time!
The key to picking the perfect watermelons is to follow the six “s” method, which stands for “spot,” “stem,” “shape,” “size,” “sound,” and “skin.” When picking a watermelon, these are the elements to look for to ensure that you’ll have the juiciest watermelons!
Sometimes, depending on the stock at your local grocery store, you may find it hard to find a watermelon that has all of these elements. And if that’s the case, that is okay! Try to find one that has at least 3/6 of the “S'” to ensure that you’ll have a delicious watermelon to satisfy your cravings!
Now that you have a perfectly ripe watermelon, how the heck do you use it?! While you can absolutely slice it and eat it raw, there are so many delicious ways to enjoy a summertime watermelon!
I hope these tips help you to pick the juiciest watermelons, every time! If you decide to try out these tips, please be sure to leave a review and rating below! And, since I practically live on Instagram, be sure to tag me in your creations so that I can repost them! Enjoy! xX
