Whether you intend to eat cantaloupe fresh or dry it to extend its shelf life, it’s essential that you harvest it at the proper time to get the most flavorful fruit. Cantaloupes have a netting design on their exterior surface. If the area behind the netting is green it’s not ripe enough for picking. If the surface is a cream color, the fruit is ripe. The blossom end of a ripe cantaloupe will have a slightly musky smell. Check the crack on the stem. If it extends to the cantaloupe, the fruit should be ready to pick and the cantaloupe will easily slip off the vine. If it doesn’t, leave it a few more days, then check again.

Cut the cantaloupe into 1/4 to 1/2 inch slices. Place on a tray and put in the dehydrator. The drying time varies, but typically exceeds 8 hours. If you’re dehydrating cantaloupe in an electric oven, the preparation process is the same and the drying time varies. To test for completion when you dry cantaloupe at home, make sure the slices don’t feel damp when you touch them and moisture droplets aren’t visible when you tear or bend the slice.
