Watermelon
Summer is the time to chomp into a big, juicy, pink watermelon with friends and family. Spoofee has got a handy guide to picking a good one:

• Tap the watermelon with your knuckles and listen for a hollow sound
• There should be little color contrast between the green stripes
• The end should be going from white to light yellow
• Press your thumbs into the skin from all angles. It should be hard all around.

    If you grow watermelons in your own garden, check the little curly growth near the stem of the melon. When it’s completely brown and dried out, the melon is perfectly ripe.
