Storage Tips: Keep an uncut melon out of the refrigerator until you're almost ready to eat it. The USDA Agricultural Research Service has found that storing uncut watermelon at room temperature may double its carotene levels and increase lycopene levels up to 20 percent. This is because watermelons continue to ripen and build up antioxidants after they are picked, but chilling cuts off this process.
Place room-temperature melon in the refrigerator to cool it down before eating. It stores best fairly warm but tastes most refreshing cool.
Place the cut surface of leftover melon facedown on a plate, and refrigerate. You can use covered glass containers for smaller chunks of melon. Use within 2 days.
