The Instacart guide to orange flesh melons


About orange flesh melons

Mouthwatering orange flesh melons are a popular treat during the summer. It's the season when most local grocery stores stock the shelves with these yummy fruits. There are several different varieties, including cantaloupe and orange honeydew.

These tasty fruits are oval to round in shape and often have ribs. They're prized everywhere for their firm yet juicy salmon-hued flesh. When slowly matured on the vine, their perfect ripeness has an unforgettably sweet and subtle flavor. A few uncommon orange flesh melons include:
This orange-flesh melon has smooth, light gray-green skin. It's best known for its divine flavor and delicious aroma, thanks to its high sugar content. This petite melon is about the size of a grapefruit, making French Charentais perfect for sharing with a friend.
Just as you'd expect with a name like Ambrosia, this melon is intensely sweet, with pale orange flesh. It's so smooth and juicy it melts in your mouth. Its floral nuances and silky texture help it live up to its name. It perfectly complements a plate of salty prosciutto and sharp cheese.
This oddly colored version of your favorite picnic treat is crisp, juicy, and mildly sweet. Like its red-fleshed siblings, orange watermelons can come seedless or with classic black and white seeds. Did you know that this variety can be candied or fermented, and it can weigh up to 30 pounds?

FAQs About Orange Flesh Melons

You can instantly spot a spoiled orange flesh melon by its sickly appearance inside and out. If the fruit is whole, its soft spots and bruises will become increasingly prominent until the entire melon loses its shape. If you notice any liquid seeping through the rind or an unpleasant odor, it's time to toss that fruit in the trash.

When you get your orange flesh melons, it's best to store them uncut in the fridge. Despite their sturdy appearance, they are quite perishable. The crisper's high humidity keeps them from drying out, so if the whole fruit fits in this part of your fridge, keep it in there.

You can cut your fruit in half if needed. Leave the seeds in the center and cover each side tightly with a sheet of plastic wrap against the flesh. If you plan to section your melon into bite-size pieces, leave the rind on. It will help it stay fresh for up to three days.

Freezing is another excellent method for preserving orange flesh melons. You can ball, cube, or slice the fruit and place the pieces on a baking sheet to freeze overnight. Place the frozen bits in a zip-top freezer bag.
