HOW TO CHOOSE A GOOD MELON

Better Homes & Gardens - - Food -

Once a melon is har­vested, its sweet­ness and fla­vor are set. To make sure you buy one picked at its prime, look for these clues: The ground spot on the un­der­side of a wa­ter­melon should be more golden than white; if the stripes on the rind show signs of yel­low, the melon is over­ripe. A can­taloupe or hon­ey­dew is ripe when you can gen­tly de­press the skin at the blos­som end (op­po­site the stem); if you break the skin, the melon is over­ripe.
