5 Tips To Pick A Sweet Watermelon
Many people have no idea how to select a watermelon. They just knock on this over size 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 experience farmer, buying a juicy, tasty, fully ripe, and sweet melons 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, I would like to share some tips from experienced farmers at Mak-Migro FARMS LTD that will help you to choose the finest watermelon ever.
Look for “webbing”
These weblike brown spots on the melon mean that bees touched the pollination parts of the flower many times.
The more pollination, the sweeter the fruit is.
Look for the Field Spot
The yellow spot, known as the field spot, is the place where the melon rested on the ground.
Ripe watermelons always have creamy yellow or even orange-yellow spots, not white.
Pay Attention to the Size
It is better to choose neither the largest nor the smallest melon. Select an average-sized fruit.
And Note, please: large or small, the watermelon should feel heavy for its size.
‘Boy’ and ‘Girl’ Watermelons
Many people do not know that farmers differentiate watermelons by gender.
For example , ‘boy’ are bigger, have an elongated shape, and a watery taste. The ‘girls’ have a rounded shape and are very sweet.
Inspect the Tail
A dried tail indicates that the melon is ripe. However, if the tail is green, it probably means that the watermelon was picked too soon and will not be ripe.
