Selecting a Good Watermelon

The best tip I heard for choosing a ripe watermelon, is to find the darkest green one you can find without any bruises or soft spots.

When I still lived in South Africa we used to knock on the watermelon and if it gave a hollow sound it was ripe, even the seedless ones.

Yeah, the way we check them is when you thump them, and they sound hollow, then they're ripe enough. :)

The watermelon farmer at the Farmer's Market told me to thump them too. If you feel the vibration on the other side of the watermelon it's a good one. If you don't it'll probably be mealy. He also said to be super careful not to drop the melon or bang it around, as that can cause the melon to go mealy too.
