Watermelon, when to harvest?

There must've been some watermelon seeds in my compost, because I now have four watermelons growing amidst my dahlias. The vine started to grow late spring and I left it out of curiosity. It's taken over part of my patio. What are the signs that they are ready to harvest? These ones are round, not oblong.
