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.

STORAGE: Hold at 45°F (7°C) and 85% humidity 2-3 weeks.
