How to Tell When a Watermelon is Ready for Harvest

I clearly remember the first time I grew watermelon. By good luck, everything went well (considering I was a novice watermelon farmer). There were no major challenges of pests and diseases and the harvests were looking very good. However, I had one problem. I did not know how to know whether the watermelons were ready for harvest. “How can such a simple thing be that complicated?” You may ask. I know this sounds like a simple problem but when it’s you facing it—you’ll know how nerve wreaking this decision is. When I tried sampling some fruits by cutting through them and eating them, I would find some are ready and others are not. It is from that experience that I wrote this post. To take out the guesswork out of watermelon harvest, experienced farmers adopt 6 strategies. This post therefore examines the 6 ways experienced farmers use to know when watermelon is ready. Check it out. You'll love it!
