These ideas could be life-changing.

After hauling home a colossal specimen, the last thing you want to do is butcher a whole watermelon. It's the worst thing about eating watermelon! Here are four simple ways to carve and serve summer's most awkward fruit, thanks to the foodies on Instagram.

1. Quick and Easy

This method has absolutely zero waste and you end up with plenty of spears to go around. By far, this is the fastest of the four methods.

2. Efficient and Quick

This simple method breaks down the melon first into easy-to-handle slices for less overall waste.


I know this post may seem unnecessary, but I was inspired today to share how to cut this beautiful fruit with ease & the least amount of waste. _ Fruit can be a bit intimidating to those who are not familiar with it enough, especially large fruit that needs to be cut. _ So I thought why not share how we cut & consume our fruit each day. _ Did you know that the outer rind of the watermelon can be consumed too? ( provided its organic ) & has a host of health benefits. It can be cooked into curries, stews & soups. Love this amazing, nourishing fruit :) Hope this post proves helpful to some of you :) Have a beautiful day!

3. Handle with Care

Peeling a huge watermelon may seem daunting, but this Instagrammer makes it look like a piece of cake. You'd definitely need a sharp knife to attempt this one.

4. Abracadabra

This varation on technique #3 requires two knives, but the results are too cool for school.
