Its color matters a lot. Its sandy gold color identifies that it is ready to cut. Check the firmness of the cantaloupe if it has become compact, neither extra stiff nor soft, then the cantaloupe is prepared. Do not squeeze it hard; you may burst it. You can also examine by lifting it; if it is hefty, then it’s the right time to pick, otherwise not. Smelling it and seeing its stem is detached by itself are good signs to check their ripeness. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
