CantaloupeMelon Madness!

You know it is summer when you walk down the produce aisle, and you are stopped by that sweet perfume of perfect melon. Well, it’s that time, and the melons are at peak season!

We love our summer cantaloupe by the slice, wrapped with prosciutto, in a cold melon soup, ice pop, or smoothie. Enjoy them while they are here.

How To Tell If A Cantaloupe Is Ripe
A ripe cantaloupe smells sweet and is firm to the touch. An odorless one is likely to lack flavor, and if it is too spongy it is overripe. The stem end will have a little bit of give if you press gently with your thumbs. A ripe cantaloupe will also feel heavier than it looks. If your melon has a bleached spot it’s fine to eat—that is from resting on the ground while attached to the vine.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask our product department for help.
