Watermelons are sold everywhere in supermarkets and grocery stores. I thought I would share my tried and true method of picking the perfect, sweet, juicy watermelon. The worst that can happen is to buy a huge watermelon, cut it open to find it pink in colour and taste less than sweet. Here is a tried and true method: See these little black bits on the scar of the watermelon? Believe it or not...that's sugar. These sugar bits are juice that has made its way out of the watermelon. It tells you the watermelon is sweet and juicy. These sugar bits can also be found on the ends of the watermelon. The more sugar bits the better! I have never picked a watermelon with these sugar bits and EVER been disappointed.
ENJOY EATING YOUR WATERMELON !!! So there you are.... the next time you buy water melon, choose those with lots of sugar marks as above and you would be rest assured of its sweetness
