How to pick a watermelon

The easiest way to tell if a watermelon is ripe is by giving it a hard tap on it’s side. If you hear a deep hollow sound then the watermelon is ripe, if it’s more like a shallow thud then the melon needs a few more days to ripen. You can also check for a yellow spot on the melon which develops on the side where the melon sits on the ground. If the spot is a bright yellow then you also know the watermelon is ripe.
