“Personal” Watermelons

I have to say that one of the best "inventions" in recent years has been the personal size watermelon!  I love watermelon but used to rarely buy it as, even with two people in the house, eating an entire regular-size version can be a bit daunting.  And more than eating it, storing it was sort of an issue – those guys take up a lot of room in the fridge!
 
So I was very happy when the first little ones starting showing up in the markets and I’m now a diehard fan!  I can easily eat one of these on my own in just a couple days.  I’ve never had a bad one, they’ve been bred to be super sweet, and even if they have seeds they are small and barely cause a crunch, if you choose not to spit ’em out! 
 
If you haven’t seen these little guys yet take a look around the next time you are shopping.  While a higher cost per pound than a normal size, they often are on sale for just a couple bucks.  And the prices have come down each year as they become more widely grown.  For me the convenience is well worth the extra cost.
