Cantaloupe Storage

Submitted by webmaster on

Uncut Cantaloupe should be stored:

  • Unwashed (moisture increases likelihood of mold)
  • Room Temperature
  • Undamaged (bruising will spoil faster)

Once cut, store cantaloupe:

  • Washed (prior to cutting)
  • Refrigerated
  • In a plastic container (such as Tupperware)
