Hi, I’m Chris Tavano for Tundra Restaurant Supply and in this episode I’m going to show you how to properly peel a couple more summertime fruits. Here we got a cantaloupe.

Just like the watermelon, when picking out melons you kind of want to go for something that is really heavy but a smaller size. The reason why is because you know it’s going to be juicy.

This cantaloupe we got here is a little bit oblong so I’m going to show you how to peel this, but first thing I’m going to do is cut it in half. Here we go. Look at this lovely color combination here. Keep in mind, it’s really easy to follow your knife path. You want to make sure you get just behind the green and into the orange, but not too much of that orange flesh that is edible. You want to save as much as that as possible.

You take approximately a one inch section of your blade. You put that in the middle of the green transition right here, the color transition you see. You’re just going to follow the edge of the cantaloupe, the melon itself. Then take the top. Trim off any other little green pieces.

You want to take the seeds from the inside. All you need is a spoon. Kind of like a pumpkin, scoop it all the way around. You should feel all the loose stuff. You can throw that right in your bowl. Now we’re just going to dice up this cantaloupe.

I’m Chris Tavano for Tundra Restaurant Supply and that’s how you properly peel and clean a cantaloupe. If you’ve got any further questions, please comment below or call our sales floor directly, and please subscribe.
