Watermelon

vegetable

Growing:

Start seeds indoors a few weeks before last frost date, or obtain young plants for direct planting in the garden. After danger of frost has past, transplant in garden about 3 feet apart. Watermelon plants are vines and will need a lot of space to sprawl out. Harvest when the plant turns completely yellow.

Selecting & Storing:

Selecting a watermelon is tough, you can't judge it by the way it looks or feels—instead, hold the melon to your ear and knock on it—if it sounds hollow, it's a good one! Uncut, a watermelon can last up to a couple of weeks if kept out of the heat. Once cut, either cover cut section with plastic wrap or cube entire remaining portion and seal in a container, either way it will last a few days in the refrigerator.

Basic Preparation:

Wash outside of melon if it is visibly dirty. Use a sharp, hefty knife to cut the melon either in rounds or wedges to enjoy as a stand-alone snack or dessert. Cut into cubes to add to fruit salads or serve as a side.
