The Watermelon Yellow Spot

Even if you have a system for picking the finest watermelon, consult Watermelon.org. 

They advocate "Look, Lift, Turn!" to know whether a watermelon is ripe. Not recommended: pounding.

First, pick up the watermelon and examine for indentations, bruises, and rind cuts. Scratches are natural given its field-to-market route.

Watermelon weight makes the second "lift" phase difficult (the heaviest one recorded by Guinness World Records in 2012 rolled from Tennessee into infamy at 350.5 pounds). 

The yellow area is on the "turn" step. MasterClass calls this the field or ground spot since it's on the ground. 

The yellow mark on the bottom shows that it matured on the vine and ground before being picked.
