About cantaloupe melons
Cantaloupe melons are sweet fruits with soft orange flesh and a cream-colored rind with a netted texture. Cantaloupe is related to pumpkins, watermelon, zucchini, and squash.
You'll find a cluster of seeds in the center of the melon that you can easily scoop out with a spoon. The tender flesh is sweet and silky. If it's crisp or crunchy, the melon is underripe. At peak ripeness, cantaloupe fruit is juicy and soft but not mushy or mealy.
Cantaloupe is the most popular melon in the United States, and for good reason. It's a tasty snack by itself and doesn't require any additional preparation to make a tasty treat. In the United States, the per capita consumption of cantaloupe was 6.11 pounds.
When you're getting ready to cut cantaloupe, you should wash the outside of the melon, your cutting surface, and your knife before cutting into the melon to keep it safe from bacteria. You can serve the flesh in melon balls, wedges, or cubes. It makes a delicious addition to any fruit salad and pairs particularly well with watermelon. Add a bit of mint to enhance the flavor of a sweet cantaloupe salad.
If you'd like to enjoy cantaloupe in a savory snack, try eating it with prosciutto and mozzarella. Grill the cantaloupe to give it a distinctive smoky flavor. You can also toss cantaloupe in a salad with cucumber, feta cheese, basil leaves, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt.
