mini watermelon


The beginning of summer means more fruit. Different types of mangoes are appearing, and in a month or so the giant ones will be available.

Saw mini watermelons in the market. I asked the guy at the stall to pick for me and he showed me a trick: there should be a small stem at the bottom and the fruit when tapped sounds solid. The first one I opened was good. Sweet and juicy and very thin skin. They are very small, around a teaspoon-length across. I ate half using a spoon to scoop out the flesh.
