This method will work for any melon, any size. It’s wonderful for the big watermelons, because you can get them cut up very quickly.
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.

I love watermelon! I’ve been keeping an eye for good melons in our commissary, hopefully they’ll start coming in soon.
I cut the ends off of lots of fruits and veggies to make them easier/safer to cut. It’s the best trick.
that’s how i did our watermelon the other day…it was the first time i had done it that way and it was much easier! too bad the melon wasn’t that good…
That looks much easier than the way I’ve been doing them! Does the melon get slippery to hold while you scoop out seeds? I suppose I could cut it in half, remove seeds and THEN peel it. Great tutorial Hallee, Thanks! BTW…you do a great job of speaking clearly and at just the right speed.
Thank you! I talk so fast normally (as you know) — that Pacific Northwest upbringing, I think. I have to concentrate to slow down.
It’s somewhat slippery, but not too bad.
With big watermelons, I cut them in half first. But, I’ve found with the smaller melons, cutting them in half just makes more work.
Another month and they’ll be SO GOOD. I love watermelons in July! So sweet and juicy.
This looks a lot easier than what I’ve been doing. I usually cut first, then peel later. Thanks for the demo!
thanks for the wonderful tip
Genius! I wish I’d seen this before I tackled a watermelon yesterday. I will for sure be using your method next time. Thanks!
Thank you so much for this tip! I’ve always struggled with cutting watermelons. I never thought of using a bread knife!
