How can you tell if a watermelon is ripe

It is hard to determine whether or not a watermelon is ripe. Although the part of the watermelon touching the soil turns from a light grass-green to a darker, cream green as the fruit ripens, many people thump watermel-ons—the solid sound produced indicating ripeness, while a sharper sound indicates a greener fruit. Results of this technique vary, depending on how the fruit is lying on the soil.

A good indicator of ripeness is the condition of the tendrils nearest the melon. They curl and dry up when the melon is ripe.
