How do you know if a watermelon is ripe?
To determine if a watermelon is ripe, employ a few key observations. Begin by thumping the melon gently; a hollow sound typically indicates ripeness. Examine the field spot—the part that rested on the ground while growing—for a creamy, yellowish hue, which signifies ripeness. Check the skin for web-like lines known as “webbing,” as more webbing indicates increased sugar content. Seek a matte finish instead of a shiny one, and ensure the watermelon has a symmetrical shape without irregular bumps. A dried, brown tendril near the stem and a heavier weight for its size are also signs of ripe watermelon.
