How to pick a watermelon?
To pick ripe watermelon first you need to pick it up. Big or small, the watermelon should feel heavy for its size. Next look for the yellow spot, watermelons develop a splotch where they rest on the ground. When this splotch is creamy yellow, it’s ripe. Then give the watermelon a thump. Do this by tapping the underbelly of the watermelon. A ripe watermelon will have a deep hollow sound, under-ripe or over-ripe melons will sound dull.
