This Is How You Can Pick The Perfect Watermelon Without Even Cutting It

You know I really love watermelons because they not only keep you hydrated in summers but are also light to eat after the dinner as a desert. But I was disappointed one day when we ended up to a really tasteless watermelon in spite of its thick red color. To which I asked my father that although he's an expert in choosing fruits, why did he fail this time? Obviously, he was answerless because no one could have helped in this.

Also, nowadays farmers inject some chemicals to the fruits to increase the density of the color sometimes as well as to make them mature early. And it is not only important to learn the right ways to eat fruit but the fruit should also be a healthy one all by itself.

So, here I have some new tricks by how we can discover a juicy and sweet watermelon, apart from our traditional and very own trick of asking the fruit vendor to cut and show the redness of the fruit.
Since, it doesn't work anymore.
