Expert Tips

  • Select cantaloupe and honeydew melons by smelling the soft stem end. A sweet, fruity fragrance means ripeness. Store both varieties of melon at room temperature until they are ripe, then keep them in the refrigerator.
  • Instead of cubing the melons, cut into balls with a melon baller.
