All the fruits that you associate with summer are becoming available in May and that means good prices on all kinds of melons, Romano says.

Not only will you see high quality cantaloupe, but the prices -- normally $3 to $4 each -- will drop by $1 per piece. You also could find specials of 2 for $5, he says.

Honeydews -- more demanding to grow and slightly less plentiful -- are normally $4 to $5 each. But they also will drop to $3 each, he says.

If you have a taste for watermelons, it's not too early to snag a buy. In the time between March and May, those personal-size watermelons drop from $6 to $4, Romano says.

"May is a good time for these," he says.
