Harvest Tips: Melons are best harvested at their peak of maturity; not a moment early or later. Determining this point is a bit tricky and a skill that melon farmers develop with years of experience, but here are a few pointers:
• Smell the blossom end of the melon. They will have a sweet smell when they are ready.
• Look at the skin color. If they are a netted variety, they netting will have become more pronounced and the skin between the netting will have changed from a green color to tan.
• Honeydew varieties will develop a yellow blush on their otherwise ivory colored rinds.
• Some of the "old-timey" type melons, for example 'Banana' melon, will slip from the vine when ready.

When all else fails, cut it open and go for it!
