Cantaloupes have been on sale for great prices recently, but it doesn’t matter how much you save if you don’t bring home a delicious cantaloupe. Picking a perfect cantaloupe is easy if you know the secret.
Lift the cantaloupe to your nose and smell the part of the cantaloupe where it was severed from the vine. Keep smelling melons until you find a cantaloupe that smells like a slice of cantaloupe.
I also like my cantaloupe to be a little soft. I like a little give when I squeeze my melons – not squishy, but not rock hard either.
