Known around the world for their sweet fragrance and flavor, fresh cantaloupes are a versatile ingredient in recipes and make an excellent garnish. In addition to traditional Cantaloupe varieties, we offer our proprietary MAG® Melons, which have an even more pleasant and consistent aroma. Wrap fresh Del Monte® Cantaloupe Melons with prosciutto for an amazing appetizer, puree it for a delicious soup or hollow one out and use it as a bowl for fruit salad. They’re also a refreshing dessert when served with ice cream or frozen yogurt.

Pick a melon that is round to slightly oval and does not have bruises or overly soft spots. Look for well-developed, uniform coverage of the netting. Skin color should range from light green to straw yellow in color. Melons should not have a stem attached; if they do, they were picked too early.
Use in smoothies with other fruit. Cut cantaloupes in half and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream in the center.
To ripen a cantaloupe, place the whole melon inside a loosely closed paper bag. Once cut, cantaloupes won't ripen, so store cut fruit or fully ripe whole cantaloupes in tightly sealed plastic bags inside your refrigerator.
