HOW TO PICK THE PERFECT WATERMELON

Oh, this one can be hard! Try out these tips and you’ll be sure to pick out the perfect watermelon!

KNOCK AND LISTEN

Give the watermelons a good thump. I may look like a crazy person walking around and knocking on all of the watermelons, but it really makes a difference! You want to make sure that you keep knocking until you find the one that makes the most hollow sound. For whatever reason, that tends to mean that it’s ripe.

LOOK FOR A YELLOW, FLAT SPOT

Another thing that you want to look for on a watermelon is a yellow, flat spot. Rumor has it that that means that it has been resting on the ground for a long time. It’s had plenty of time to ripen up and should be sweet and ready to eat!

LOOK FOR BEE STINGS

My grandma taught me that you want to look for a watermelon with a bee sting in it. Rumor has it that if you find a watermelon with an imperfection from a bee sting, that it’s all the sweeter. Whether it’s true or not, I don’t know. But Grandma doesn’t lie!

HOW TO PICK CORN

Corn can be so hard to choose since you can't see

Corn can be so hard to choose since you can’t see or feel through the husks. But did you know that most stores are okay with you peeling back the husk to look at the corn? This allows you to check the kernels and make sure that there aren’t any that are moldy or dried out.

If you find a good one, then get it! If you find a bad one, then put it back and keep looking.

Cantaloupe

Much of cantaloupe’s ripeness can be determined by its smell. It should have a sweet scent and be a light beige color.

Squash

When it comes to squash, look for skin that’s shiny and unblemished. Opt for smaller sized-options, which are easier to cook.
