How To Pick A Good Watermelon

Summer is the time to chomp into a big, juicy, pink watermelon with friends and family. Spoofee has got a handy guide to picking a good one:

  • Tap the watermelon with your knuckles and listen for a hollow sound
  • There should be little color contrast between the green stripes
  • The end should be going from white to light yellow
  • Press your thumbs into the skin from all angles. It should be hard all around.
