How to Select

Look for cantaloupes with a sweet smell. They should feel slightly soft near the stem.Look for honeydew and watermelons that feel heavy for their size and sound hollow when tapped.

How to Store

Keep whole melons on the counter and eat within a few days. Put cut melons in a sealed container and keep in the refrigerator for up to three days.

How to Prepare

Wash melons before cutting as they can have harmful bacteria on the surface. Using a sharp chef knife, cut the melon in half on a cutting board. With the cut (flat) side down, cut it in half again. You can then slice the melon into triangular wedges for easy eating, or you can cut the melon flesh into bite-sized pieces.
