Watermelon is a fresh treat, a perfect dessert after a summer barbecue and above everything (you ladies!) a guilt-free pleasure, as it contains very little calories. We love to add it in our after gym smoothies and it’s also one of the most handsome fruits.
Although the watermelon season changes per state, the best time of the year to buy this fruit is between May and September because then it’s alternatively season in the four most important watermelon-growing states. Florida has an early watermelon season, between April and July. Watermelon season in Georgia is between June and September. Texas has a long watermelon season between May and November. A couple of months later, California kicks in between July and November. If you like to purchase locally produced watermelons, you can find the right watermelon season for your state in the following chart.

There are many ways to eat watermelons, add them to any salad, pickle them, spice them or make the easiest and healthiest pops. And they are great with fresh seafood too! Because it’s so easy to store them at home and because you can keep them in different ways for a while, they are a very easy fruit to upgrade almost any moment of the day (even the cocktail time).
We know it, it’s difficult to know which watermelon is in the perfect ripe. If you feel the ends are softer and if you can hear a dull sound by thumping it, it’s good to go. Enjoy it!Look at the seasons of these fruits & vegetables:
