Australia Dawson Rock Melon (Orange Flesh)
- Sweet flesh when it's ripe
What is in the order?
How to know if a Melon is ripe and ready to eat?
They should smell like fragrant flowers, that’s how you know they’re ripe. If they don’t smell, you can still buy them and let them sit out on your counter for a few days until they are just right.
When you shake a rock/cantaloupe melon, pay attention if the seeds are loose. If they are, then the melon is ripe.
When you squeeze a melon, it shouldn’t be hard as a rock, it should give a little. Now, obviously you don’t want a spoiled melon, so it shouldn’t be too “squeezable” either!
4. Stem (Anthena)
They should be fully dried and soft at the stem root
