You thump it for the sound! Then grandpa would cut a small plug out and with brewer's yeast he'd put yeast and sugar over and over then put the plug back and in a warm corner 2 days, over and over! When it got soft and then strain it out!
Ever heard the song? "Sweet Watermelon Wine"!

I did see where a user reported my answer. Should do a little background, I also have watermelon, and several types of peppers this year.

You squeeze them Nomad.
If they feel soft then you know they're ripe.
This only works for certain kinds of melons though.
