One of the best parts of Summer is all of the seasonal produce like tomatoes, peaches, corn, and melons. Today we’re giving you tips on how to pick the perfect cantaloupe:
👀 LOOK - Yellow/golden color (avoid green ones), deep recesses running end-to-end, smooth and round indentation where stem was.
🖐 FEEL - Feel for mushy spots and avoid those, should feel heavy, stem end should give somewhat when you press it with your thumb.
👃 SMELL - Sniff the end opposite where the stem was and it should be sweet and fragrant, no smell means it’s not ripe and an alcohol/acetone scent means it’s fermenting and overripe.
