Finding the perfect watermelon is easy! Simply follow these three easy steps:

  • Pick up the watermelon, a good watermelon should be surprisingly heavy for its size.
  • Knock on the watermelon with your knuckles and you should hear an echo sound as if you are inside of a cave. If you hear a ‘thud’ try a different watermelon.
  • Check the bottom, there should be a creamy yellow spot from where it sat on the ground and ripened in the sun.

Watermelons are a powerhouse of vitamins and nutrients. Here are three fun facts about the health benefits of watermelon:

  • Excellent levels of Vitamin A and C to boost immunity
  • Watermelon is 92% water and a great way to stay hydrated in the summer sun
  • Watermelon contains lycopene, an antioxidant that plays a role in protecting your skin from harmful UV rays

Need a new way to eat watermelon this summer? Try these three new ways to devour this tasty fruit:

  • Grill it! Slice your watermelon in chunks and place on the grill for 2-5 minutes. The char from the grill will add a delicious, exciting flavor!
  • Add diced watermelon to your fresh summer salads.
  • On wooden skewers or large toothpicks, layer watermelon, cheese and prosciutto for a mouthwatering appetizer.
