How to tell if your watermelon is ripe #Fruit_Garden
It may seem difficult to tell if your homegrown watermelons are ripe. Pick it too soon, or too late--and you might as well throw it away!
Look at the tendril and spoon (the very small spoon shaped leaf) that grow closest to your melon--both will dry and turn brown when your watermelon is ripe. Also if you look at the spot on your melon where it rests on the ground, it will turn from white to cream or yellowish.
If there is no spot, it is probably because your melon has rolled or been moved from the original resting spot.
