How to choose the right juicy and sweet watermelonPictolic
It is difficult to imagine that someone can not love such a juicy and unimaginably delicious delicacy as a watermelon. Especially in this heat. In summer, they are sold everywhere and everywhere, but few people know how to choose a really correct watermelon so that it is ripe, juicy and sweet. Sometimes it seems that this is just an impossible task that only a real gardener can cope with.
Don't worry, here are some tips on how to choose the perfect watermelon.
On an earthen spot
The yellow spot, also known as the ground spot — is the place where the watermelon lay on the ground when it ripened. In ripe watermelons, it is dark yellow or even orange-yellow, not white in any way.
These brown spots, similar to a spider web, mean that the bee often touched the ovary of the fetus during pollination. And the more often it was pollinated, the sweeter the fruit.
Boy or girl

It is better to choose not the heftiest watermelon, but also not the smallest. Choose medium. And remember that regardless of the size, a watermelon should always seem heavy for its volume.
A dry tail means that the watermelon is ripe. If the tail is green, then the fruit was removed too early and it has not yet ripened.
