All Cantaloupes have netted skins but their flesh colors range from orange-yellow to salmon. They have a flowery fragrance and are sweet and juicy.
A ripe Cantaloupe will have a musky sweet smell at the stem end of the melon. An odorless melon is likely to be tasteless. Try innovative new ways to use this fruit, such as puréeing it with other fruits as a cold soup or using them as bowls to serve fruit salad, as well as a garnish.
