Trick #1 – Look At The Field Spot
The field spot is the light colored patch on the watermelon, indicating where it was laid on the ground. This spot develops as the fruit ripens.
If it has a very small field spot (or none at all), don’t even think about buying this; the fruit was picked way before its time.
The perfect watermelon will have a dark, large field spot.
