Growing Watermelon

I have planted 2 watermelons in early summer & they produced 3 good sized fruits, 2 are still on the vine & now the vine is sending out lots of runners with numerous fruits which I have pollinated, it's now early Autumn. Will these fruits mature or does the vine die off once the cooler weather starts?

Let them grow they probably will produce fruit but probably not as good as the first 3. Yes the plants will die back some time.
