Do you eat it with a knife or a spoon or maybe a fork? I like to eat mine with a spoon! My grandfather got me started on that! What about you?

Salt and a fork or spoon it does not matter. It depends upon if I am eating it right off the rind or not. If it is cut up I will use a fork. If it is off the rind I usually will use a spoon.

First thing, I have to sliced the whole watermelon, then sliced it to pieces afterwards, take out the seeds from it...then, that's the time I start eating my melon :-)

They still have a produce market here in the city where I live in Texas that sells ice cold watermelon that way. What I need to know is how do you pick a good sweet watermelon? My mother used to pick out the sweetest watermelons and I can't pick a sweet one for anything.

I eat my watermelon with a fork. I never eat it with a spoon unless I am dipping some of the juices out. I like to add salt to my watermelon before I eat it also because it makes it taste alot sweeter, believe it or not. Have you ever tried that? My family got me started doing that.

Oh yes, my mother got me started on the salt on watermelon. It does make it much sweeter.

Watermelon is way to messy to eat with a fork or spoon. It just does not taste as good unless you have juice dripping off of your chin and elbows. I suppose if you used a spoon you could taste more of the yummy juice though.

Oh watermelon is my favorite fruit. I slice it into cubes first, and then put it inside the refrigerator. It's best eaten when it's cold. Other than this, I just eat it with a spoon. Either way, watermelon is always refreshing.

If I eat it in a restaurant during a meal with guests I eat it with a knife and fork. If I eat it at home with no guests then it's either with a spoon on just my teeth. However, watermelon has no taste unless I sprinkle a little salt on it to bring out the sweetness. Sound crazy? Don't knock it until you try it.

I like it sliced really thin & eat it with a fork. When I was a kid we ate it with our hands, just picked it up and ate it.

I eat it by hand. Either in a quarter circle, or half circle shape. I hold it by the rind. In my family, we eat it outdoors and spit the seeds off into the ground - or sometimes we shoot them at eat other by squeezing them between our fingers.

I eat my watermelon with a fork but I used the knife for cutting it and taking the wedge off first. I Like eating watermelons its very refreshing and sweet. I take it chilled on ice and sometimes add a litte dash of salt. :-)

I eat mine with my mouth! Ha, ha We slice it into wedges, pick it up with our hands, and bite into it. Now other melons, like cantaloupe, we cut in half, scoup out the seeds and eat with a spoon. We even put ice cream in the center of the cantaloupe where the seeds used to be.

It depends on my mood, sometimes I would use the spoon and other times I would just eat it with my hands.

To eat water melon, I use mostly a spoon, but also a knife to cut square to it's easy to get the fruit away from the skin. :-)
