melon Ripening

Asked September 21, 2016, 5:32 PM EDT

I have a melon that has started to ripen and it was separated from the stem before fully ripe. Will it continue to ripen on the ground or should I handle it differently and bring it in or put in a bag to continue the process?

I would get it out of the field if it has come off stem. Place it somewhere cool and dry to let it ripen the best it can.
