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 also at these fruits & vegetables:
