Nutrients: Melons are high in Vitamin C.  Cantaloupes are a good source of vitamin B6 and A.  Watermelon has lycopene, an antioxidant.

 

Make Sure it's Fresh: Good cantaloupes have a floral bouquet, and have deep netting and golden color. Good honeydews have a creamy color and waxy skin. Good watermelons have waxy skin and sound hollow when thumped.

 

Storage: Store all melons at room temperature. If you prefer them chilled, refrigerate overnight.
