A wide variety of melons are available throughout southeast Asia. These include the honeydew and casaba melons, cantaloupe, and others. Melons are often simply sliced and eaten fresh as a dessert or snack. They can also be made into juices or mixed with other foods (e.g. coconut milk or pearl sago) to make a number of desserts.

Market and storage tips — For canteloupes and similar melons, rub the stem spot and smell. If there is no smell, don't buy it. Then shake the melon and listen for a sloshing sound. Sloshing indicates that the melon is over ripe. Watermelons should be rapped with a knuckle. A hollow sound indicates maturity. The white spot where the melon lay on the ground turns slightly yellow when it is ripe.
