Ripe Melons

How can I tell when a watermelon is fully ripe? What is the method used

by growers in picking for commercial shipping?

Gently press the sides of a melon and if it crackles a little bit, all

right; if it makes no sound then go to another. Commercial pickers look

at the little spiral between the melon and the nearest leaf. If it is

withered they pick the melon, if fresh, pass it until next picking.
