When to pick

Yesterday I picked one of my "tranche de miel" Charentais melons. It was too soon. The advice I have been picking up is to wait for a bit of a golden hue to the skin ... or to wait for the leaf next to the melon to turn yellow. I did neither of these. But I have four left on the vine and I shall wait patiently.
