The other day I saw some watermelon at the grocery store and decided to get one. These were medium in size and rounded. I was being very careful in picking the perfect watermelon. A couple years ago I bought one at Smithe's and it was rotten inside. Yikes! I had not since then purchased a watermelon until a couple days ago.
Cut up in half.
"It's red inside!" I said. Back in Taiwan the really rounded watermelons were often times yellow inside.
This watermelon had a very crisp texture, which I love, but not very sweet. Overall it was a nice watermelon.
I remember watching some Japanese shows one time, where people mentioned how you can sprinkle a little bit of salt on your watermelon, which will enhence its sweetness in taste. I have not yet tried this method.
How do I eat a watermelon? I cut it in half and eat it with a spoon! My parents always let me do this when I was young, if we didn't have guests at home.
