How to Pick a Watermelon

  • Locate the Field Spot – Look for a deep yellow color. If there’s a white field spot or no field spot at all, it likely won’t be good.
  • Pick a Dull Looking Watermelon – A shiny appearance indicates an under-ripe melon. 
  • Knock on It – Use your finger or hand to knock on it. If this produces a muffled, hollow sound, it is ripe.
  • Get the Heaviest One for Its Size – This applies to pretty much all produce, but you want to pick the watermelon that is the heaviest one for its size. That means there’s more water in it.
  • Check for a Uniform Shape – Some watermelons are round, some are oval, and either is fine. But if there are irregular bumps, this indicates the melon may have gotten inconsistent amounts of sun or water.
