How to choose Sprite Melons: Look for sprite melons with a lot of yellow on the outside. Also check the brown ring at the bottom of the melon where the vine was attached, if the ring is full of cracks, you know you have a very sweet melon. If you want to buy ahead, sprite melons can be ripened in your refrigerator and will keep for several weeks.

Climate and origin: Like most melons, sprite melons prefer warmer temperatures and can be grown in warm temperate to tropical climates. Particularly adept to the climate of the U.S. Southeast, sprite melons are popular in Eastern North Carolina and should be found there from Mid-June to September.

Taste: Sprite melons have a crisper and sweeter texture over other melons. Like an aromatic syrup, properly ripened sprite melons can have sugar contents 25-30% higher than that of other melons.
