What to look for before buying yellow watermelons?
Season: As watermelon is a seasonal fruit, summer would be an ideal choice to buy a yellow watermelon. May to October is when yellow watermelon is harvested. Grocery stores will have the fruit even out of season, but it won’t be fresh.
The packaging: Unfortunately, every watermelon has the same outer side, green and some with a bit darker lines on them. Yellow or red watermelons cannot be differentiated by just looking outside.
So look for the details in the packaging, there should be yellow watermelon or yellow crimson watermelon labeled outside. The best solution is to buy the ready-made cut one.
Seed: There is the seedless and seeded version available of yellow watermelons. If seed bothers you too much, look for seedless watermelon.
Sweetness: Bear in mind that yellow watermelons are comparatively sweeter than red ones. So people with high blood pressure or obesity shouldn’t eat this frequently.
