How to Store Watermelon

share this post

Proper storage is key to ensuring the freshness and flavor of a watermelon. Here are some tips for storing watermelon:

  1. Store at room temperature: A whole watermelon can be stored at room temperature for up to 2 weeks. However, once it’s cut, it should be stored in the refrigerator.

  2. Refrigerate cut watermelon: Once you’ve cut into a watermelon, wrap the remaining fruit tightly in plastic wrap or put it in an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator. It should last up to 5 days.

  3. Keep it dry: Watermelon should be kept dry, so make sure to wipe off any excess moisture before storing it.

  4. Don’t stack heavy items on top: Avoid stacking heavy items on top of a watermelon, as this can cause it to crack or become damaged.

  5. Keep it whole as long as possible: Watermelon will stay fresher longer if kept whole, so only cut into it when you’re ready to eat it.
