Do you knowhow to pick out a goodwatermelon? Someone once toldme to bang on it and listen for a“B” flat sound. Well, I don’tknow about you, but I couldn’ttell a “B” Flat from a “C” Sharp.Experts say LOOK, LIFT, andTURN. Look to see if it issymmetrical, firm and free ofbruises and scars. The rind shouldbe firm, and the darker green thebetter. Lift to see how much itweighs. Watermelons are 92percent water so the heavier themelon, the riper it is whencomparing like sizes. Andfinally, turn the watermelon overand look for the light coloredspot. This is known as the“ground spot,” where it satduring growth on the ground.This spot should be a creamyyellow color, not white orgreenish. The more yellow thespot, the riper the melon.
