Will ripen in 2-3 days. Melons ripen after harvest but do not increase in sugar content. Keep melons out on the counter until you are ready to eat them, as it’s best not to refrigerate them unless fully ripe or cut.
Uncut melons last much longer than those stored in the fridge and should last two weeks on your counter in a cool spot away from sunlight or direct heat.
If you like your melon chilled, refrigerate them overnight or for a few hours just before serving. Be sure to thoroughly wash the outside of melons before cutting into it to avoid spreading any potential bacteria.
Cut melon should be wrapped tightly or placed in an airtight container and refrigerated immediately.
