How to Store


– Store immediately covered or protected in the warmest part of the walk-in cooler. Melons are very susceptible to damage from too cold environments. Chill damage will cause the flesh to become soft and mealy.

– Melons are ethylene producers. Store away from vegetables that are ethylene sensitive.

– Do not stack product on top of the cases or cause the melons to be crushed.

– Remove any melons with damage or that begin to mold immediately.



– Follow good rotation practices, first shipments received should be used first.

– Avoid dropping the case or rough handling.
