The Cantaloupe is a fruit which belongs to the Melon family.
It has a characteristic net-like, rough skin with ridges and is yellow-orange in colour.
There are various methods of choosing the right Cantaloupe.
Some individuals squeeze the skin hoping for a slight indentation, knock it or shake it to determine its fullness.
When you cut into a ripe Cantaloupe you will discover a delightful orange interior filled with seeds in the centre.
For sure, you will be unable to simply eat one slice.
Therefore, it is advisable that you cut the Cantaloupe in two, and wrap one-half in Saran Wrap.
Scoop out the seeds or simply scrape it off with a sharp knife. (Avoid cutting fingers!)
