Picking the best
Look for a smooth, rounded, depressed scar at the stem end. This indicates melon was picked at full maturity and separated easily from the stem. Avoid bruised or damaged fruit.

Ripe melons should be refrigerated for a few days while a watermelon should be stored at room temperature for five to seven days. Once a melon is cut it needs to be wrapped and stored in the refrigerator up to five days.
