Do you eat melons, cantaloupes or honeydews? I'm actually quite confused with melons and cantaloupes as they somewhat look the same to me. (But I think they belong to the same specie/family) But the photo above is what I eat and we call it melon. Honeydews are much easier for me to identify as their peel appears to be smoother from a greenish to yellowish color and the flesh is usually pale green. I love eating melons. I just clean out the core and slice into large wedges put them in the fridge and simply enjoy them chilled! I love how its dark orange flesh is refreshingly juicy and creamy, perfectly sweet with a strong flavor. At times, I'd like to mix them with watermelon and honey dew or other fruits, add some lime juice and honey, cilantro or mint and that's it my summer salad! Melons and Cantaloupes are also healthy to eat. Its a great source of vitamin C & A, potassium and B vitamins. Do you eat melons? How do you like your melons?

We eat several different varieties of melons (honeydew, cantaloupes, Crenshaw, Canary, Charentais (French, delicious). We like it simple sliced and served as a fruit.

Cantaloupe is similar to melon, but the cultivation group is different, oval shaped with orange skin and greenish lines. I like both, but I eat cantaloupe only on Ramadan.
