It was a very hefty watermelon at about 7 weeks (?). The bottom had that telltale yellow spot to indicate ripeness, right? Note: I didn't notice any "moons" on this melon... maybe that is a better indicator of ripeness.
When I cut it open, it smelled and looked ripe. In the very center, it tasted very sweet, but towards the outside, it was not as sweet.
I cut up 2 big containers of the sweet meat and then the hens feasted on the rest.
We still have the other watermelon ripening on the vine. Glad to enjoy some fruits of our "labor" and looking forward to the next one....and growing more of these next summer!
