Greg and Jon toot the horn of the cooling, flavorful muskmelon. Greg reminds us to avoid buying whole chilled cantaloupes and honeydews, since aroma is key to picking a ripe one. For a watermelon, Jon points out, you can determine ripeness the old-fashioned way: thump it.  "I remember thinking as a child that in heaven, we could eat all the watermelons we'd want, and they'd all be perfect."
