Organic Watermelon

Organic Seedless Watermelon have been tasting great from Florida where the season is winding down plus from Mexico and California. Organic Mini Seedless Watermelons (small and easy to carry home) are abundant and priced reasonably!

Orange Flesh? The best-tasting of all have been the Organic Orange-flesh Seedless Watermelons from Lady Moon Farms in Florida. Keep an eye out for this specialty crop during their micro-season in late May and the first week of June.

Look For

  • Firm-shelled melons. The rind should be hard when you squeeze it.
  • Mostly symmetrical melons that feel heavy (watermelons are 92% water).
  • A creamy yellow spot underneath show it ripened in the sun. That’s the spot where it sat on the ground as it grew and ripened.
  • Tapping? You have to really know what you’re listening for so I can’t recommend it as a sure-fire way (even though I almost always tap melons myself).
