Melons are sweet and delicious! Try them on their own or in a salad!
How to Select
The best indicator is smell; they should have a strong sweet smell. Also, the net should be raised and the rind underneath it should be tan to golden, not green.

How to Prepare
Wash the melon, cut, scoop, and slice or cube
