Watermelons are generally large, oval, and a mottled green color with red or pink flesh. Of the more than fifty varieties, picnic melons are usually the largest (the average grocery store watermelon runs 20 to 25 US pounds, and yields about 14 to 18 pounds of edible fruit), with icebox melons being smaller, rounder, and compact.
Look for fruit that is yellow on the underside, without bruises, soft spots, or cuts.
