Perfect WaterMelon

What do you look for when buying a watermelon?
Some of them don't taste that good.

We heard that if it is almost completly round in shape this is a good sign and that it will taste nice.

What are other peoples thoughts?

The other one,is try the tapping method,if it has a hollow sound,its a fresh one with a good taste,but if it has a more of a thud sound,then that will tell,it started to deminish.
l hope l got that right.

Re: Perfect WaterMelon

Sorry going off thread a bit, couldnt belive my eyes the other day in a market at home they were charging 8 for a water melon, compared with about 20p in Turkey, I like them not too big no obvious blemishes, dont know about the colour whether or not dark green is best or what.

Sorry no help at all really

Thanks Bob

It is something I never understood either, I had often seen the locals tapping them but could never understand how they used it as a measure of quality.

Re: Perfect WaterMelon

Thanks Bob will also try that method.

Jane: Not sure about the green either but at a guess they are probably nicer the darker the green they are.
That is very expensive for a watermelon in the UK, there must be a shortage there. Glad they are so cheap here as they make a very refreshing snack when its hot.

Re: Perfect WaterMelon

Havent tried it my self but have seen a couple of receipes for this on cookery programmes, you get a water melon push into it a small funnel or a small plastic bottle with the bottom cut off (lid end pushed in) then over a couple of days keep filling the bottle/funnel up with vodka ( or any alchohol you like I suppose) apparently you can put a whole bottle of vodka in it, keep it in the fridge and cut into wedges and hand round to your guest, Hic! Hic! oops sorry.

Re: Perfect WaterMelon

hmm sounds interesting!
Might invite some turkish friends round for tea and watermelon...only problem is they might never leave as they may have never tasted melon that good!

Might try that one time Thanks Jane

Sparkling Melon
Watermelon is packed with some of the most important antioxidants in nature.An excellent source of vitamins C,B and A, watermelon is a brilliant energy provider and weight loss aid (a whole glass of watermelon contains only 48 calories)It is also extremely high in nutrients per calorie.
You will need a juicer for this
Quarter Water Melon
Ice cubes
Sparkling mineral water (optional)

Later in the day you can add the demon vodka! But not if you want to be
healthy.

Enjoy.
