Do you know how to choose the sweetest watermelons in the market? Well, I can tell you some tips on how to buy the right watermelon and choose only those that are ripe and sweet. But you should know that there are lots of varieties of watermelons in the market. Some are small and dark rind in color; some have stripes and are big. Other countries shape up their watermelons into squares and some watermelons are yellow in their outer skin but the color is so red inside. Some watermelons are seedless, some have smaller seeds and some watermelons have the biggest seeds. But no matter what type of watermelon you eat, what is important is that it should be sweet and ripe before you buy them.
Here are some tips I can share to you on how to select the sweetest refreshing watermelons.

1.Check if the watermelon is firm and if there is no crack or signs or being bruised by someone who has dropped it. In this way you can know if your watermelon is fresh and in good condition.
2.Smell the tip of your watermelon, is there any indication that it smells sweet or just neutral. If your smelling senses are really tough, you can tell by smelling if the watermelon is already ripe and sweet.
3.Knock the watermelon, if it sounds low pitch and firm, it means it is ripe.
4.Check it again by knocking, in this way you will know the ripe and sweet watermelon. If you hear the watermelon sounds somewhat the same like knocking your forehead, then it’s not yet ripe. But if you knock it and it sounds pretty much the same like knocking your chest, then that is already ripe.
5.Make sure there is only one side of the watermelon that has a yellow color and it’s at the tip but this one depends on the type of watermelon. I still suggest you do the knocking technique.
