H-A-N-D For Selecting A Good Cantaloupe

My father passed on his guide to selecting a good one as follows:

Remember your hand when selecting loupes.

  • H - It should be heavy.
  • Ad

    A - Aroma should be pleasing at the stem.

  • N - Netting, there should be a lot on the surface of the loupe.

  • D - Depression, the stem base should sink in a little.

I have always picked good cantaloupes using this as a guide.
