Health Benefits of Watermelon
I love how incredibly refreshing and hydrating watermelon is on hot days. Watermelons are 92% water and contain electrolytes, vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B6, vitamin C, potassium, lycopene, fiber, magnesium and amino acids. They pack in so much nutrition and happen to be the #1 budget friendly fruit.
Here are my favorite watermelon selection tips for the perfectly ripe, sweet and juicy watermelon…
- Pick it up – it should feel heavy for its size (means it is full of water).
- Inspect it – It should be firm, symmetrical and free of bruises, cuts or dents in the rind.
- Look at the underside of the melon – it should have a creamy yellow spot from where it sat on the field and ripened in the sun.
- Sniff it – a sweet aroma means a sweeter melon!
A brilliant red interior indicates a sweet melon.
