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 Store
Melons will continue to ripen after they've been harvested as long as you store them at room temperature. If you like melons chilled, refrigerate them overnight. Much longer than that and they can start to develop soft spots and pitting.
How to Prepare
Wash the melon, cut, scoop, and slice or cube
