These towering tiers of summer-ripe fruit will make a stunning centerpiece for your next cookout, potluck, or shower. Use your favorite fruits to customize the design; simply secure firmly with wooden picks.
Although it’s tempting to try and make this ahead of time, don’t make it any earlier than 4 hours before you plan to serve it; the cut watermelon will get too juicy. We’ve offered sample sizes for the tiers in the recipe below; feel free to use them as a guide and scale the tiers up or down depending on the size of your watermelons.
2 medium-size watermelons (about 16 lb. each)
1 cup fresh Rainier cherries
1 cup peeled and sliced kiwi
1 cup fresh raspberries
1 cup fresh strawberries
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 cup sliced yellow peaches (from 2 peaches)
Fresh mint leaves
