How can you ripen a cantalope after it has been quartered?

Most fruit does not ripen further after cutting. In future, check for ripeness before you cut the cantaloupe. It has a distinctive smell when ripe, and the blossom end will “give” a little when pressed. If it is not ripe when you buy it, ripen at room temperature.
