Robbie’s Produce Tips: Tuscan Heirloom Melons

  • Tuscans should be fragrant and heavy for their size.
  • Tuscans should be “full slip,” which is to say vine ripened and the stem falls off and is no longer connected.
  • They should have a nice golden-yellow color. As they ripen the ridges actually turn from green to the yellow color of the melon.
