    1. If you ask, the vendors will slice a watermelon (or papaya, or pumpkin,…) so you may check it out inside, and they will even let you buy half or a quarter.


    1. Those are papayas! They are called “papaya amarilla” – “yellow papaya”, and the flesh is also yellow. These are the most common in Mexico; the greenish and smaller with orange flesh are called “Hawaiian” and are more expensive.
