CULTURE: Follow instructions under "Melons".
RIPENESS: There are 3 ways to tell when a watermelon is ripe: 1) the tendril nearest the point on the vine where fruit stem attaches is browning/dead, 2) the spot where the fruit rests on the ground is yellow, and 3) the classic mystery - you hear "punk", as opposed to "pink" or "pank", when you flick the melon with your fingers.
