Watermelon Picking Tips, Recipes and Information

Watermelons are one of the easiest fruit to prepare and serve. There's no peeling, pitting, coring or cutting. Just slice, bite, and spit!

Select plump, full watermelons with a yellowish cast to the spot that rests on the ground and a dried stem. A hollow thud sound when gently rapped also helps!

Watermelon Measurements and Conversions

Keep in mind that watermelons vary in density and moisture content, so these ranges are approximates.

  • A normal batch of 10 eight-ounce jars watermelon jelly requires 6 cups of watermelon flesh, minus seeds and rinds.  But the rinds can be used to make pickled watermelon rinds, so there is no waste.  Especially if your children have fun spitting the seeds at each other, too!
