No one likes cutting into a melon and experiencing flavorless fruit. Fortunately, harvested melons give off some clues about their ripeness, reports MNN. The California Cantaloupe Advisory Board has advice on how to pick a ripe cantaloupe. First, look for raised, cream-colored ridges. Also, make sure the melon is free of bruising. The melon should have a sweet musky aroma and the stem should be smooth and round. With honeydew, the whole melon should have a strong, sweet smell. The seeds will also rattle around in a ripe honeydew when it's shaken. For a watermelon, it should be fairly symmetrical. Also make sure that it feels very heavy.
