Ingredient: cantaloupe

Selection Tips

  • Look for cantaloups with large webbing or netting on the skin.
  • Choose fragrant, symmetrical cantaloupes with no visible bruises.

Storage Tips

  • At room temperature it takes up to four days for melons to ripen.
  • Melons are ethylene sensitive, so they ripen faster if stored with ethylene-producing fruit such as pears or bananas.
