How to Ripen a Cantaloupe?

Answer

Cantaloupe is an excellent candidate for at home ripening. To ripen a cantaloupe, set the unripe melon on your countertop. If your home is kept very warm, be sure the melon is left in a cooler spot. Keeping it in a spot that is too warm will cause it to rot, instead of ripen. Allow the melon to stay on the counter top for several days. You should notice a change in color from green to white with a slight orange tinge. You can also smell the spot where the stem came from. When the melon is ripe you will be able to smell the melon from that spot.
