2. Avoid Shiny Watermelons

Although shiny watermelons look appetizing, they aren't the best ones to pick. A shiny skin indicates that the fruit inside isn't ripe. Instead, look for a watermelon with a dull, matte appearance. This shows that the melon is juicy and ready to eat. This trick can be applied to other melon varieties as well.
