The Del Monte MAG® Melon has a more pleasant, consistent, and concentrated aroma compared to traditional cantaloupes, and has a sweet flavor and juicy texture which can be experienced in every bite. Similar to traditional melons, the MAG® melon has a relatively short growing cycle and is grown in temperate locations. It is available year round in North America and is grown in Costa Rica, Guatemala, Arizona, and California. One of the many consumer benefits of the MAG® melon is its small seed cavity which provides more value per purchase. With its unique rich golden outer shell color, consistent flavor, and aroma, the Del Monte MAG® melon is rapidly becoming consumer’s favorite melon variety.


  • In addition to the traditional nutritional benefits that a cantaloupe offers, the MAG® contains higher fiber, protein, carotene, and Vitamin C.

Tips for Selection

  • Pick a melon that is round to slightly oval and does not have bruises or overly soft spots.
  • Skin color should be a bright yellow color.
