It should sound "dull" when tapped, but I always think sound is subjective. Look at the growing end where the stalk is and about 5cm away will be a tendril (curly growth). When it starts to wither it's close - wait till it dies .and then pick and enjoy. (In your area it still could be a couple of weeks away.)
