How Do You Pick a Watermelon?

Whether you’re picking it off of the vine or off of a shelf at the grocery store, you’ll want to follow these tips.

First, pick up a watermelon that is uniform and feels heavy for its size. You want to avoid ones that have any blemishes like bumps or dents.

Turn it in your hands so that you can see the “field spot“. This is the discolored part of the melon where it sat in the field. It starts off white and becomes yellowish when it’s ripe and at its full sweetness.

Another tip is to look at the stem if there is one. A dry stem indicates that it’s ripe, while a green stem indicates that it wasn’t ready yet.

What Flavors Go Well With Watermelon?

Safe flavor combinations include using other fruits on a tray or in a salad such as berries and other melons.

You can add avocado, red onion, and jalapeno to create complex flavor profiles. You may also want to use seasoning for watermelon dishes like chili pepper, salt, and mint.

Is Watermelon Full of Sugar?

Watermelon isn’t necessarily full of sugar. 92% of it is made up of water alone. 

Still, there is a good chunk of sugar in the remaining 8%. A cup of watermelon has around 10 grams of sugar, depending on the variety. Keep in mind that this is natural sugar, not processed junk.

Plus, watermelon is naturally fat-free, very low in sodium, and only has about 40 calories per cup.

When to Serve these Spiked Watermelon Popsicles

Popsicles are great for the summer. Serve these at pool parties, 4th of July get togethers and birthday parties.
