    Everything looked fine on the outside, but after cutting it open I found two small regions in the middle of the watermelon where the flesh was hallow and white with some yellow towards the end of the white section before the pink resumed.

    If this some sort of fungus or blight? Should the rest of the watermelon still be edible or is it best to throw it out? I tried Googling the matter but found nothing that sounded like what I saw.

    it probably isn't good, and it is good to be safe with produce. :)

    Sounds reminiscent of a woman's blighted innards, of which I would not eat under such circumstances.

    Ask Bass for advice. I hear he's an expert.

    yall are a prime example of a generation that has no clue about the production of food etc...the middle is hollowed cause of lack of water in the field...not a fungus or blight...
