Many people have no idea how to select a watermelon. They just knock on this over-sized fruit as if they know what they are doing, it may be good to use, but is it difficult to master the knocking technique. Sometimes we think that unless you’re an experienced farmer, buying a juicy, tasty, fully ripe, and sweet watermelon is hit or miss. However, it doesn’t have to be if you look for a few things when you’re picking out your melon. In fact, you can tell whether a watermelon is ripe without actually cutting it. Today, we would like to share some tips from experienced farmers that will help you to choose the finest watermelon ever
1 Look for webbing.
The webbing brown spots on the water melon means the bees has touched the pollinating part of the flower many times the more the pollination the sweeter the water melon
2. Look for the field spot. The yellow spot that the water melon rested on the ground is called the field spot. Ripe water melon will have cream – yellow or orange – yellow spot not white
3. Pay attention to the size. It is better neither to choose the largest or the smallest size. An average size is better and make sure it feels heavy
4. Boy or girl. Many people do not know farmers differentiate water melon with gender . Boy is bigger with elongated shape and always watery while girls are shorter with almost round shape and are sweeter
5. Inspect the tail. A dry tail shoes the water melon is ripe while a green tail indicates the water melon is plucked earlier
