While writing this I feel like I’m watching Special Agent Oso (If you haven’t had the “pleasure” of watching this cartoon you won’t get it, thats okay.) “Three special steps, that’s all you need. Three special steps, and you’ll succeed…” You’re welcome for getting that stuck in your head for the day (sigh.) #momlife
Anyways, here are the 3 simple steps I was taught to picking out the juiciest, tastiest, sweetest watermelon in the bunch!
1. It doesn’t matter if you pick the biggest or smallest, just make sure it’s heavy for its size. This means its full of “juice”. Nobody wants a dry watermelon!
2. Find one with a good size yellow spot. This is where the watermelon has been sitting and ripening. If there is no spot or the spot is white, it was picked prior to being fully ripened.
3. Those ugly brown veins and brown marks are good! It’s where bees pollenated and the veins are from the natural sugars hardening!
