Re: Watermelons

Watermelons are not adapted to long storage.
Optimum temperature for watermelon storage is 60F. The fruit can be stored for up to 2 weeks. The relative humidity is not critical due to the thick waxy rind. melons should be ventilated and kept at a temperature range of 55 to 70F. Be careful not to allow temperatures to approach 90F, for the tissue begins to breakdown at this temperature. Once sliced, watermelons should be wrapped in cellophane and stored at 32 F. Do not store with other fruits that emit ethylene. This will cause over ripening and tissue breakdown.

Re: Watermelons

There is one way you can store melons for winter.Get yourself a smoothie,and pulp it to a refreshing drink.Bung the juice in sealed containers,and store them in the fridge.keep the seeds for producing your own melons for next year
