How do we use this product?
Its flavor is best when cold, so it’s a good idea to keep it refrigerated whenever possible. After washing it well, you can cut it in half lengthwise, scoop out the seeds, and eat it out of the rind with a spoon, like cantaloupe or melon.
As it’s incredibly versatile, it can also be combined with other foods that complement its flavor.
