SCIENTIFIC NAME: CUCUMIS MELO
large green MUSKMELON with a delicate netting on the rind and a rich salmon-colored flesh. Persian melons weigh around 5 pounds (larger than a CANTALOUPE) and have a delicious, sweet flavor. They're available from July through October, with a peak in the late summer. Choose Persian melons that are heavy for their size; the rind should be pale green with a delicate netting. Avoid melons with soft spots. Store unripe Persian melons at room temperature, ripe melons in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Just before serving, cut melon in half and remove the seeds.
