? How to choose a juicy and ripe watermelon without cutting it

Rare are those who do not want to freshen up with juicy and delicious watermelon during the hot summer days.

But sometimes it seems as if it is impossible to choose a juicy, refreshing and delicious watermelon, unless you are an experienced breeder.

Fortunately, there are ways to find out if the watermelon is mature and without cutting it.
Remember these tricks for the next time to choose the most beautiful watermelon:

Watch the side of the watermelon lying in the ground

The yellow spot marks the side on which the watermelon is lying in the ground. Mature watermelons always have creamy yellow, and even orange spots, not white.

Watch the lines

This network of brown spots and watermelon lines means that the bees have touched the pollinating parts of the flower many times. The more pollination, the fruit is sweeter.

“Male” and “female” watermelon

Many people do not know that farmers differentiate watermelons by sex. For example, “male” are larger in elongated shape and with aqueous flavor. “Women” have a rounded shape and are very mild.

Pay attention to size

It is best not to buy neither the biggest nor the smallest. Choose medium size fruits. And do not forget – whether it’s big or small, the watermelon needs to weigh in proportion to its size.

Check the “tail”

The dry stem shows that the watermelon is mature. But in any case, if the stalk is too green, it is likely to be harvested very early and will not mature.
