The humble apple corer is great for… well… coring apples. But you can also use this handy kitchen tool to transform watermelon into a mess-free finger food.

Instructables user openproducts shows us how to create attractive nibbles from a variety of fruit, including watermelon.

A watermelon gives a really nice result because the rind can be cut out as well, resulting in a layered colour pattern as can be seen in some of the pictures.

The cumulative mass of the sticks amounts to approximately 70% of the initial weight on the watermelon slice (dependent on the space that is left in between the holes). The leftover part with the holes is perfectly fit for human consumption: don’t waste it.

Leave the rinds attached if you want something to hold onto, or chop it off for a more uniform colour. There is quite a lot of work involved for personal fruit consumption, but it’s a great way to make an impression at a party.

  • what’s so wrong with the wedges of water melon?

    cut off rind if you want no scraps being held by guests.

    • I guess this way is slightly less messy? I wouldn’t do this technique to solve a problem, it just looks a bit more interesting than wedges.
