What did you learn from these watermelon quotes?
Watermelon might just be the hardest fruit to pick when you are at the grocery store.
It’s not really very easy to just pick up and squeeze it.
Those things are heavy!
It isn’t like picking up a kiwi and squeezing it.
Luckily, you don’t determine whether a watermelon is ripe by hauling it around and trying to squish it.
When it comes to watermelons, it is the size and what is on the outside that matters.
A good rule of thumb is to never pick the biggest or the smallest watermelon; you are much better off going with one that is in the middle!
Also, be sure to check the colors of the rind.
The juiciest and most delicious watermelons will have a yellow-orange spot.
Avoid the ones that are super white!
Of course, it is great to eat watermelon by the slice, but it is also good in drinks, salads, and desserts!
