Its just simple, melon float in water because melon has lesser density compared to water, unlike the tomato, has density greater than water.

Density is the mass of an object over its volume. And the force reacting on the melon and tomato is called the "buoyant force" which is related to the density of the floating or sinking object and the density of water ^^

The melon floats due to the area that it displaces in the water exerts a greater force upward on the melon keeping it afloat whereas the tomato is denser and the forces cancel each other and it would sink.
