The Watermelon You Can Eat Without 25 Friends
A 20-pound watermelon may be your go-to summer dessert for a crowd
, but a healthy snack you can munch on when you aren't expecting company? Not so much. That's why we love the mini melon, which clocks in at around four to seven pounds and yields about eight servings. Michael Castagnetto, global sourcing VP for the produce company Robinson Fresh
, says Robinson has spent years working with seed companies to develop the mini melon. The juicy, sweet melons are more manageable for smaller households, have a higher fruit-to-rind ratio (their thin rinds mean more fruit, and less for you to toss)—and with 75 percent of melon sales taking place between May 1 and September 30, now's the time to enjoy them.
