  • Lay the watermelon on a sturdy surface with the stems facing horizontally.
  • Slice the watermelon, turning it as you do so. There is no need to slice right through the watermelon.
  • Once you have come full circle with the slice, simply slice a bit deeper through it until it splits.
  • Turn the watermelon on the flat side. It is now much easier to slice off the skin from the top to the bottom.
  • Once the skin and white parts are removed, slice the watermelon into slices and then cube it further.
