Category: Fruit
In Season: all year
To Buy:
Seedless or with seeds. (The seedless make the whole experience of eating them much more enjoyable.) Choose melons with a well-rounded shape and smooth surface. The underside should be creamy yellow. Knock it with your fist and listen for a hollow sound to indicate that it's ripe.
To Store:
Cut melon should be stored with plastic wrap for two to three days. Uncut melon will keep in a cool place for up to two weeks.
Tips & Tricks:
Melon should be rinsed with water before cutting. A serve of watermelon is equivalent to one large slice.
Cooking Tips:
For a healthier icy pole, cut seeded watermelon into rectangles and freeze it - kids love it.
