Persian melons are great for breakfast, lunch, dessert or as a snack.

Choose firm fruit with a sweet fragrance. Avoid Persian melons that have dark green backgrounds below the netting--they were picked too early.

Look for fruit heavy for its size, yielding slightly under pressure with brown netting.

Keep cut or ripe fruit in refrigerator for up to three days. Ripen at room temperature.
