I bought 2 melons from Asda, I've had them a week so thought they be ripe. It was horrible not juicy or anything. I usually love melon.

Is there a way to get it to ripen as I have the other one still. I hate wasting food but having problems with melon not being ripe enough & then in a few days going rotten.

is this just Asda melons or was I unlucky?

How have your stored it ?

I think that they are meant to be kept out of fridge.

I would take them back!

ring them up and tell them, have you still got your receipt ?

I always take things back to Asda if im not happy with them, and they are quite good.

open it up and see what its like, if its the same take it back

I think your just unlucky,

Put them on the side with a fruit bowl containing bananas, get them touching if possible. Bananas ripen any fruit :)

When you buy your melons slap it and if it makes a hollow sound chances are it is ready to eat.

During our melon season they get so cheap I buy a dozen or so and keep them under the bed in the spare room. I suppose that does the opposite to ripening.

I love the banana advice and will try it.........thanks.
my melons have been like this for a few weeks from asda,otherfruits too not being so nice, so ive started going to my fruit shop fruit is soooooo much fresher nicer n juicer, xxx:)
So true! The fruit from my local greengrocers is lovely fresh and juicy.
and whatever is in season can be so much cheaper sometimes.
