How to Select a Watermelon

I always thump the watermelon to tell if its ripe. If it sounds hollow like a loaf of home baked bread then its ripe. I have never had a bad watermelon with this technique!

The "bottom" of the watermelon (the side that was lying on the ground while it was growing) is usually a white color. When it has turned a creamy yellow, the watermelon is ripe.
