FAQs

Make-Ahead and Storage:

Can I Make a Watermelon Fruit Bowl Ahead of Time?

You can certainly prepare the fruit bowl several hours in advance, but do not add fruit to it. Cover it with plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator until you are ready to add fruit to it.

Making this Fruit Bowl in Advance: Do not mix cut-up fruit together until shortly before your party. Some fruits will start to get soggy when combined with the sugar or juice from other fruits. Watermelon does not stay crisp overnight. Strawberries soften too much when combined with juice for too long. So, carve your fruit bowl the morning of your party and store it covered in the refrigerator. Shortly before your party – about 30-45 minutes, prepare a bowl of cut-up fruit. Scoop the fruit into the fruit bowl and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve

Storing Fruit: Fresh fruit is highly perishable and even more so when sliced up. Store fruit covered in a very cold refrigerator for best preservation

Tips and Tricks

  • a round or oval watermelon works fine for this idea
  • seedless watermelons are preferred
  • Use a chalk marker to outline your cut before you start carving your watermelon
  • slice a small section off of the bottom of your watermelon to help it stand upright without toppling (try to only shave a tiny bit so you don’t reach the red flesh too much)
  • prepare fruit ahead of time but do not mix in the watermelon or strawberries until shortly before serving. They tend to have a reaction to the juice and sugar from other fruit and will start to soften or turn soggy
