Cantaloupe

Five Crowns Marketing is one of only two shippers to exclusively grow the popular Origami cantaloupe variety. While it has a familiar rough, tan, netted rind, shoppers prefer the Origami for its thinner rind and smaller seed cavity. It also has more of the deep orange, extra sweet, edible flesh that shoppers love.

Retailers appreciate this melon’s quality and firmness which means a longer shelf-life. Our Southern California growing location ensures early availability each summer.

Ripe Cantaloupe

SELECTION

Ripe cantaloupe has a sweet, slightly musky scent. A good cantaloupe feels heavy for its size, has a rind that resembles raised netting, and a stem end that yields slightly when pressed with your thumb.

STORAGE

Store a slightly under ripe cantaloupe in a closed paper bag at room temperature for two days to ripen. A whole cantaloupe can be stored in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks.  Cut cantaloupe should be wrapped in plastic and can be refrigerated for 3- 5 days.
