Want to order a Cantaloupe melon? Be aware that the price is per lb. An average melon weighs about 5 lb.
Cantaloupes have a greyish-beige skin with a raised netting overtop. The flesh is pale orange, juicy, and sweet. When ripe, cantaloupes are fragrant and yield to pressure at the blossom end. Remove the seeds and cube for a fruit salad or slice and wrap with prosciutto and mint for a refreshing summer salad.
