The Q&A Archives: Freezing Watermelon

Question: I would like to know if you can put watermelon in a freezer. If so, what would be the best way to freeze it and for how long?

Answer: Do to it's extremely high water content, watermelon can not be frozen and maintain it's integrity, taste and texture. If you have a bumper crop of watermelon you could instead try a few different things. I have had success dehydrating it in one of those food dehydrator gizmos. It shrinks QUITE a bit as you would imagine, but the result is delicious, sugary sweet candy like tidbits. You can also make watermelon marmalade, watermelon granita, watermelon salsa, watermelon daiquiri....even watermelon rind pickles!
