Check the National Watermelon Promotion Board Web site www.watermelon.org for recipes using watermelon and tips on choosing and storing watermelons.
IMPORTANT: Wash the outside of the melon under clean running water before cutting into it, use a clean knife on a clean cutting surface and wash your own hands with soap and water before cutting the melon. Once melon is cut, it should be stored, covered, in the refrigerator. Don't leave cut melon at room temperature longer than 2 hours TOTAL time.
