I have read sooo much info on when to pick my watermelons. I have 2 varieties. A round one and an oblong one. I'm thinkin a couple of the round ones are ready. But I'm not sure... I've heard to look at the stem, I read to look for creamy yellow under the melon. I've heard the sound is hollow sounding and if you give them a little pressure, they make a cracking sound( I laughed at the last one there).
Some changes I've noticed in the past few days, they have mostly stopped growing. The skin has turned from dull to glossy. They sound more hollow when slapped. The bottom's not creamy yellow and the stem is not dried or brown.
Sooo I only have 3 of this particular type and I don't really wanna guess when they are ready! If there are any big time melon pros out there, I would love some real life advice and techniques that you use
