How do I tell my watermelons are ready to harvest?

Tendrils will turn brown next to fruit stem. The skin becomes dull. Rap on the fruit. The rap should create a dull sound rather than a sharp sound. The spot touching the ground should be cream in color.


Cut the stem with shears to harvest the watermelon.
