Why settle for a good melon when you can have a MAG melon?! MAG is a new cantaloupe variety that is sweeter, more succulent and always refreshingly delicious. This melon has more fruit, fewer seeds and a smooth, consistent flavor.
Cantaloupe offers a wealth of options for creating delicious dishes, desserts and drinks. From fruit salads, smoothies, and salsas to gazpacho, skewers and mocktails, MAG melons are refreshing and delicious—with health benefits, including fiber, potassium and vitamins A and C.
Store melons at room temperature. When ripe the melon will emit a musky, floral fragrance and the skin near the stem end will be slightly soft to the touch. To prepare the melon, rinse the skin, slice in half and scoop the seeds from the center cavity. From there, slice into wedges with the skin on, or shave off the skin and cut into chunks. Store sliced melon in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
