Is it safe to eat this watermelon?

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. :)

Never let the watermelon win.

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...

Been growing my own watermelons and other fruit/veggies for about 10 years...:eusa_whistle:

Now if I can just keep the damn dog out of them.

It wasn't entirely ripe.

Watermelon flesh doesn't start out pink.

I have a fenced in back yard, so I'm just moving the "growin' patch" to the side yard this year instead of the back yard.

Ahhh, that explains it. Organic veggies and fruits are good, but they usually aren't "picture perfect". Still better for you than the pesticide grown things IMO, but they are more likely to have visible flaws or spots like the one you described.
