    Pick out a melon that is gold in color.
    Smell the melon.  A sweet scent indicates the melon is ripe.
    The melon should be firm and free of soft spots.
    Shake the melon.  The seeds should be rattling around a little inside.
    Knock on the melon a little with your fist.  A deep sound indicates a healthy melon that will be sweet and tasty.  Avoid melons that produce a hollow sound.

    Hope this helps!
