Watermelons are available throughout the summer from
late June to September.
Usage and Cooking Strategies:
Make sure to wash the outside of the melon before cutting
into it and store in the refrigerator after being cut.
Cut in wedges for easy serving or peel and cut the flesh
into cubes. Freeze watermelon cubes and blend in the
blender for a fruit freeze. Watermelon will make a great
savory salad with feta cheese and red onion.
Keep at room temperature until ripe and then store in
the refrigerator. Peel and freeze the cut flesh for
use in smoothies.
