Hi, I'm Teca Thompson, farm to table chef, and today we are talking about how to tell if a watermelon is ripe. So one of my favorite ways to tell is to do the knock knock test. And you knock knock on it and as you can hear it's nice and hollow. So that's a very good sign. Also you want to note that they're very green, very firm and kind of plump and heavy feeling. So lets see if we are correct and if this watermelon is ripe. That's always a good sound when you are cutting into it, to have that kind of cracking sound as your knife is going down. And as you can see this watermelon is very red and crisp, and beautiful, and ripe. So, I'm Teca Thompson, and that is how to tell if your watermelon is ripe. Thank you for watching.
