Seasonality: Apr - Sep

A refreshing melon for snacks, added to fruit salads, in cold fruit soups or as an edible garnish. They can be used in salsas, smoothies, and sorbets. The flesh of uncut melons becomes juicier and softer when kept at room temperature one or two days before serving. Delicious eaten by itself, or for added flavor, try it with a sprinkle of ginger, salt, or a squeeze of lemon or lime juice.

Melissa’s Crenshaw Melons are hand-selected for excellent quality. Choose melons that are firm with a sweet fragrance. Look for fruit heavy for its size, yielding slightly under pressure. Keep cut or ripe fruit in refrigerator for up to three days. Ripen at room temperature.
