Watermelons are at their best when they are fully ripe, juicy and sweet. But how do you know when they're ready to harvest? Here are a few things that indicate that your watermelon is ready to harvest:
- The tendrils near where the watermelon meets the stem, which are normally bright green, will turn brown.
- The surface of the watermelon goes from shiny to dull.
- The side of the melon that rests on the soil will turn from green to yellow.
