Good-quality watermelons will be firm, evenly shaped, heavy for their size and have a deep-pitched tone when slapped with an open palm. One of the easiest methods for selecting a ready-to-eat watermelon is to simply turn the melon over. If the underside is yellow, and the rind overall has a healthy sheen, the melon is most likely ripe. Watermelons do not ripen any further once they are cut from the vine.
