I have not grown Cantaloupe in 30 years I don't remember how to know when is the best time to harvest for maximum flavor?
Our cantaloupe patch has 7 large melons 2 of them have been slowly turning yellow for 3 days but today 2 have turned completely yellow. When I worked at the watermelon patch we were told, "Roll the watermelon over if the bottom is yellow pick it, if its white roll it back." That does not work on cantaloupes the whole melon is yellow. I picked 1 melon, it is pretty good but it could be better. I think melons needs to grow longer but how much longer?
