Both of the earlier replies are accurate in determining ripeness. I like for there to be a dryspell 2-3 weeks before harvest as the level of sweetness will become more acute.

Last year I grew Crimson Sweet and Charleston Gray. One of the Chas. Gray produced a specimen that weighed over 40 lbs. and was sweet as candy. Of course I saved several hundred seeds and have more growing this year.

I plan to send some of these Charleston Gray seeds to the seed swap this Fall.
