Slice through the beautiful, green rind of these Oregon-grown melons and you'll discover the glorious, fiery red flesh within. Serve alongside your favorite entrée, or enjoy on its own. Sweet, juicy and just right for summer, you'll love every scrumptious bite.

Tip: For the perfect melon, choose one that's heavy for its size yet hollow-sounding when knocked on. And look for a yellow or light spot on the bottom, which indicates ripeness.
