Sweet melons

For sweet melons back off with the water when your melon enters the ripening stage. This allows for concentration of sugars and flavors.Best indicator of ripeness:Watch the little tendril next to the melon, when it starts to look like it's dying, start to water less, when it is dead your melon is ripe. Good luck!
