Here is the best way to choose red watermelon

Recent studies have proven many health benefits of watermelon, especially with regard to the integrity of the intestines and kidneys. Studies have shown that watermelon not only quenches thirst, moisturizes the skin, and refreshes the body, but may also serve as a strong laxative for the intestines, a substance that helps digestion, a blood tonic, and a breaker for kidney stones.

In this regard, food expert Yulia Lemysheva said that it is better to buy watermelons from supermarkets and certified markets, where they are tested for pesticides, nitrates and radionuclides.

She pointed out that these conditions and conditions are not available in the random outlets scattered in the streets of cities.

According to her, it is better to buy a watermelon weighing from seven to nine kilograms, with many contrasting stripes and small orange-yellow spots. When tapping by hand on a ripe watermelon, a clear resonant echo will be heard and the hand will feel reverberated.

The expert said: "People who are long-standing and seasoned in eating red watermelon, usually know how to choose the watermelon correctly. They press with both fists. The ripe fruit makes a clear and resonant sound, and the immature watermelon responds lukewarm and hollow.”

She advised Lemysheva, to put the watermelon near the ear and press on it a little, - the ripe fruit will crack a little.

The expert stressed that watermelons should be stored in a place with a temperature between 10 and 15 degrees and a humidity limit of 80-90 percent. In general, watermelons can be stored for several months.
