Look for firm watermelon with a sweet smell, dull rind and dried stem. It should have a yellow underside where it grew on the ground. Avoid buying watermelon with cracks, soft spots or a white to light green color on the underside.
Seeds, even the black ones, are edible and can be toasted just like pumpkin seeds.
Watermelons often have deformed or discolored rinds. Check the inside to make sure they are still good before discarding.
