Choose the Perfect Watermelon

There’s nothing more disappointing than buying a nice, big watermelon, cutting it open, only to see that it’s pale pink, and tastes bland; kind of like a cucumber. A few days ago I was having a discussion with my family about how to choose the perfect watermelon, and there were lots of suggestions, but I […]
