This late in the summer is the best time to buy cantaloupes. They are grown in sandy soil and easily shipped anywhere in the U.S. for purchase within a day of coming off the vine. I think the sweetest melons come from the Eastern Shore of Maryland, but it is hard to find them this far west. I believe the last batch of domestic melons in my grocery were grown in Indiana. They are huge, but not anywhere near as sweet as the ones grown in Maryland.
