Nothing tastes like summer like fresh, local watermelon – so sweet and refreshing!  So it’s little wonder that some of us go to extraordinary measures to find that sweetest melon in the bunch (thump, thump)!  The problem with the bongo beat method, is that most of us don’t know what to listen for.  Here are a few tips for selecting the perfect watermelon for the melon-tone challenged:

1.  Look it over – Look for firm, symmetrical melon without dents, cuts or bruises.

2.  Lift it — It should be heavy for its size.  Compare similar sized melons and choose the heaviest one.

3.  Turn it over – Look for a yellow ground spot.  This is where the melon was resting in the field.  A deep yellow color indicates that it was vine ripened.  If the spot is white or green, it was picked too soon and will not be as sweet.
