The most popular icebox melon! A real find for gardeners with limited space.

how to tell when watermelon is ripe ?

BEST ANSWER: There should be a slight give at the stem attachment and if you knock on it with your knuckles, it will sound hollow. The stem should still be mostly green. If it's brown, the melon will be overripe.
