When storing watermelon in a covered container in the refrigerator and a piece of paper towel is placed in the bottom of the container and also on top of the watermelon, what does this do to the watermelon? And is this necessary? I say it dries the watermelon out and takes away the flavor.

We always cut in half width-wise and turn one of the halves upside down on a large solid dinner plate, eating the other half that DAY.
I have NEVER used paper towels, and believe they would only serve to soak up any juice? I'd use more than ONE if that were my purpose. LOL
If not ready to eat it, few believe this, but I actually
kept a whole, uncut, watermelon for six months in the pantry floor with absolutely NO problem. It was a large dark green one and was simply DELICIOUS when we finally cut it....VERY ......CAREFULLY, fearing the WORST, but, much to our surprise, IT WAS FINE!
After cutting, they usually don't last more than a week in the fridge. God's original Garden of Eden
must have SURELY included watermelon because they are my favorite fruit! : )
