Cantaloupe Tips

By SkinnyandMini | May 10, 2009

How To Choose A Cantaloupe
• Choose a supermarket cantaloupe by holding close and smelling the melon. The cantaloupe should have a distinctive fresh, melon odor.
• Give the cantaloupe a gentle push with the thumb on the blossom end of the melon. This should yield slightly to the pressure. This determines just how long the melon has been sitting or how long it has been stored.
• Look at the cantaloupe. If the melon was ripened directly on the vine, there will be a smooth depression where the stem was attached.
