Friends, I love a sweet cantaloupe. The trick is knowing how to select one. Uniform cream color rather than greenish netting indicates ripeness. The stem end should be smooth, slightly depressed, and yield slightly to pressure. The melon should be heavy for its size. When choosing a cantaloupe I always put it up to my nose to see if it has a good aroma which indicates good flavor. Here are some produce deals for the week of August 24th.
