Delicious watermelons are usually green in color and have clear rims, so you should not choose melons with frosty white skins or green ones that have shown signs of yellowing. At the same time, you must observe the tip of the melon. The smaller the tip, the tastier the inside. The fruit with a large tip is usually a melon that is not evenly ripe. You should also pay attention to the stem end, whichever stem end is rolled up, the melon will be very sweet, but if it is a straight line, you should not choose it.

Use your hands to estimate its weight. The heavier the fruit, the more liquid it has inside, so it won’t be crumbly and mushy when eaten. You should choose fruits with as reddish skin as possible, then the inside will be sweet. Choose fat and round fruits, but the rolls must be green for them to be delicious to eat, and the filling inside will be fuller.
As many branches as there are at the tip of a mangosteen, there are as many segments inside. Usually, a normal mangosteen will have 7 or 8 branches which is a full fruit. Fruits with hard outer shells are mostly damaged inside and should not be chosen. Mangosteen is usually not large in size, so to be safe, choose small or medium sized fruit. If you press on it with your thumb and index finger and make a mark, the fruit has good flesh.
Delicious mangoes are round, beautiful, neither too hard nor too soft. If it is a ripe mango, the fragrance can be smelled from afar. The yellow color is slightly pale and not spotted. If not used immediately, you should choose fruits that are about 8 parts ripe, with a slightly ivory yellow skin, not as evenly yellow as fully ripened fruits. When choosing a mango, you should also pay attention to whether the mango stem is new or not and whether the skin is wrinkled or not before buying!
If you want to eat sweet and delicious rambutan, the meat is not chewy to avoid getting stuck in your teeth causing discomfort, you should choose the type of Thai rambutan (long beard) or longan rambutan, do not choose the ripe red fruit (tough meat, less peeling). The color of the rambutan fruit must still be slightly greenish yellow. The fruits that turn red are often watery when peeled. You should choose rambutan carefully in the 7th lunar month, because at that time it is very susceptible to stem rot.
