The ideal, perfectly ripe watermelon should be dark green in colour and dull looking.
Another important thing to look for the field spot. This will be a yellow splotch on the underside of a watermelon. It should be a creamy yellow colour.
Step 3: Look at the stem
For a sweeter and riper watermelon, there shouldn’t be a visible stem on the surface.
Step 4: Knock on it
Gently knock on the watermelon, as you would a door, and listen to the sound it makes. A ripe watermelon should have a full, deep, and hollow sound. You want the surface to be hard and firm.
Step 5: Pick it up
