How To Cut A Melon

Cut a melon as soon as you get it from the store.  Melons don’t ripen once picked, so don’t wait to cut it.  If you are too lazy to cut a melon, it will deteriorate with time.  At the end, you’ll end up cutting it anyway, but the melon won’t taste as good as it would if you cut the melon right away!  If you don’t cut a melon right away, you just lose :)

Once you cut the melon into chunks, you can refrigerate the melon chunks in the air-tight containers.  It is difficult to find space in the refrigerator for the whole melon, but it’s easy to find space for the melon chunks! Melon chunks take up less refrigerator space then the whole melon, and get eaten really fast!

Here’s how to cut a melon the easy way:
