  1. Wait, for the watermelon section she said those outer coating of seeds a perfectly safe to eat. Does that mean watermelon seeds ARENT safe to eat?!?!?!

    Everything I was though to be true, only to be told it's a lie, is actually a truth!!!

  2. Missing: Casaba and Charentais. I have been calling Christmas melons "Crenshaws" until I saw this video.😞

  3. People will be kicking themselves in few weeks if they miss the opportunity to buy and invest in Crypto as it's retracing….BE WISE

  4. Please let the woman in the clip know that she has as moderate-severe problem with liver or cardiovascular system or low hemoglobin levels and circulatory problems, she needs emediate treatment, it anyone in US says you are ok. Come to Russia to be cured without paying hundreds of thousands dollars!!!

  5. I’ve been waiting for one of these type of videos to come out again😭 they’re always so interesting

  6. I love her so much! I don’t even care about melons but I love watching her 🙂 my teachers should watch and take notes.

  7. Арбузов гораздо больше видов. Я ждала, а вы не показали даже "Черный принц".

  8. you also forgot that prepping them cold is way better less mess and less lost juices cleaner cuts

  9. there is an oblong and huge 20lbs+ seedy watermelon it is the sweetest of all melons and watermelons

  10. It’s impossible not to love her, and not get as excited as she does about every discovery of flavor with each bite. Definitely going to try and get hold of a couple of these to try out some of the recipes. So informative! Thanks!

  11. In Europe limelons are a kinda new thing, I'm surprised they weren't mentioned 😅

  12. She's very smart and informative so I'm not mad–but bruh why's she been the only person in Epicurious videos lately lol
