Re: Watermelon


I wonder every time what I'll find when I cut one open. This link give some methods, but none of them are foolproof...

Re: Watermelon


Some indicators of a watermelon's maturity are: tendrils or pigtails on vines change from green to brown, the ground spot on the belly of the melon turns from white to yellow, and the thumping sound changes from a metallic ringing when immature to a soft hollow sound when mature.

Re: Watermelon


Good tips! I pay attention to the stem, husband does the knocking.

Re: Watermelon


I like the knocking technique! But this one involves less guesswork: youtube.com/watch?v=2kjOnnhcLfs
