FAQs about chamwae melons
The entire melon, from the skin to seeds, is edible. Many people peel the melon and discard the seeds because of the flavor and texture. The chamwae melon, cut into cubes and chilled, offers a refreshing snack on a hot day. The high amount of water in the chamwae makes for a great smoothie. You can add a little sugar and lime juice and blend. You can make frozen chamwae melon pops that the kids, or the kid in you, will love. Many chamwea lovers make ice cream from the flesh. Simply substitute chamwae for the fruit in your ice cream recipe. If you happen to purchase an unripe melon, you can always pickle it, experimenting with various pickling flavors like garlic, herbs, or spicy peppers.
Chamwae melons have a short shelf life once picked. They should last 5-7 days at room temperature. If you think you've purchased an unripe chamwae, you can leave it sitting on your counter for a day or two before cutting. Once cut, you can store the chamwae in a plastic container in your refrigerator for 7-10 days. You can freeze the cut chamwae melon for 1-2 months using vacuum-sealed freezer bags.
The chamwae melon doesn't have the sweetness you find in other melons like watermelon, honeydew, and cantaloupe, but they do taste sweet. And that doesn't make them any less refreshing. Many people believe the mild sweetness of the chamwae melon won't make you as thirsty as other, sweeter melons.
