Question for Mom


How do I pick a ripe watermelon?  - Stephen D. 

Ask the produce manager at the store to pick one for you.  If no manager or knowledgeable staff is available, buy a watermelon that’s already been cut.  The assumption is that whoever in the produce department cut it would only cut a ripe one.  Or, thump various watermelons with your thumb and finger and find one that sounds hollow.  A hollow sound indicates that the watermelon is ripe.
