How To Tell If A Watermelon Is Ripe [VIDEO]

This summer, you may find yourself in your favorite grocery store trying to decide how to tell which one of the hundreds of watermelons in front of you is the ripest, there are two ways to find the sweetest ripest one for your family.

Growing up in a small town in St. Mary Parish, I always heard my elders say to, “thump it”.  That’s all fine and dandy, but you have to understand the thumping theory to be able to pick the right melon.  They will all make a thumping sound, but the most perfectly ripened melon will make a certain sound.

But sound is not the only way to tell which melon is perfect, the other method requires you to check the exterior.

Another way not mentioned in this video, is to check the remaining vine.  If it’s green, the watermelon is not ripe.  If it’s dried up, she’s ready to eat!
