Watermelons will cross will with other watermelons so isolate up to a ¼ or so. Once you are sure they are ripe cut them from the vine and cut open scoop out seeds and follow process found under cucumbers for seed saving. You can eat the flesh at this point seeds are normally ready when melon is ripe. Have fun collecting from watermelon should be a family event!
