To Make Hand-Held Wedges
Begin by cutting off both ends of the melon and then slice it in half lengthwise.
Slice each of those halves in half again lengthwise. Slice each of the lengthwise sections into thin wedges.
To Make Bite Size Cubes
Begin by cutting off both ends of the melon and cut the melon in half. Stand up the melon on one cut end.
Cut downward, following the shape of the melon to remove the rind in strips. Repeat and remove any remaining white areas. (A large mixing bowl next to the cutting board works well for gathering all of the rind pieces.)
Turn the fully "peeled" watermelon on its cut side and slice 1-inch thick slab-like sections. Make a stack of 3-4 at a time and then slice lengthwise into long "sticks." Turn the cutting board and slice the long stick pieces into cubes.

There should be a yellow spot on the melon - this means it rested on the ground until it was ripe.3. When you knock on the melon, there should be a hollow sound instead of a dull thud - this means it is full of juice.
