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.

When the weather turns warm, nothing compares to the taste of luscious melons. Slice several varieties and toss in a few more of your favorite fruits, such as pineapple, watermelon and blueberries to create a colorful, taste-tempting salad that welcomes the sun-kissed days of summer.

Choose from Casaba, Crenshaw, Canary, Persian, Orange Honeydew or Santa Claus and more.
