To find a ripe Heirloom Style Cantaloupe look for a golden color under the netting and a golden color in the stripes.

cleaning

Cleaning

Since melons grow on the ground, it’s only logical to make sure they’re perfectly clean on the outside before cutting them. Run cool water over the melon before eating to remove any surface dirt that may remain.

Storage
