How to Tell if Watermelon is Ripe

I love watermelon, but I always pick the wrong ones! To ensure you get a winner, look for oblong or well-rounded melons that sound hollow when slapped. The rind should be dull and just barely give to firm pressure. Steer clear of fruit that has flat or soft spots and punctures in the rind. Watermelon is the perfect fruit for summer time! Go and may the force be with you as you pick your watermelon.
