Orange-fleshed, juicily sweet Cantaloupe melon. Glorious alone, or adding perfumed sweetness to a fruit salad or smoothie. But you’d be missing out if you didn’t also try its delicate, sun-ripened flesh paired with savoury food like tangy cheese or salty ham.

Cooking

For a refreshing treat, make your own ice lollies. Just blend the flesh of a melon with the juice of a lime, pour into ice lolly moulds and freeze until set. Or freeze into beautiful perfumed granitas and sorbets for a refreshing dessert.

Cantaloupe melon is also good tossed in salads – especially with piquant accompaniments like feta or black olives.

Storage

Before cutting, you can store Cantaloupe melons at room temperature, but after you cut them, they need to be wrapped and put in the fridge.
