If you have ever examined an edible fruit arrangement, then you know how carefully each piece has been crafted before placing it in the arrangement. Cutting fruit for the arrangement can be difficult and takes practice. Melon is an ideal fruit for beginners to use because of its firmness, making it easy to slice and scoop into balls. Watermelon and cantaloupe are two melons that are frequently used in an edible fruit arrangement because their bright colours add a festive touch.
