Watermelon and all fruits are not male or female. Fruits contain the seeds and seeds develop from eggs. Females have eggs while males have the smaller gamete called pollen for trees and sperm for animals.

Plants are different than animals. A plant is neither make or female. In some species have male and female on the same plant while others in the same structure like the same flower. (I'm not an expert but even I know this)

The difference they state is only the size of the fruit. The picking tip I guess should be get the more round smaller melon.
