This great tasting melon is often interchangeably called a muskmelon. When searching for a ripe cantaloupe, the skin colour is what you look for. A light yellow colour indicates a ripe melon. A raised and well-rounded netting on the fruit surface is another indicator of ripeness. Cantaloupes are fat-free, and a great source of vitamin A and C. Enjoy them in a fruit salad with blueberries!
