  • I love fresh muskmelon right off the vine!
  • Cantelopes--one of my favs! Definitely going to try the melon mix-up with cayenne from BoogedyBoogedy of South Texas. Who knew it was so loaded with potassium??
  • I love to blend my fruits.
  • It sounds less than appetizing, but a fruit cup with melons and cucumber sprinkled with a little salt and cayenne pepper is an AMAZING snack on a hot summer day! Very popular down here in South Texas...
  • I grew Ambrosia melons for the first time this year. They were the sweetest melon and the plants were so abundant I supplied neighbors and co-workers! Tasty!
  • It's my first year growing them in the garden--so far I've picked 2 (with a bunch more on the way) and they've been delicious. Glad to hear they are so good for me too!

    Right now cantaloupe and other melons are abundant at my local farmer's market. I love to try the different varieties. They are inexpensive and grown organically. The best part is one is usually cut to sample. Check out farmer's market in your area.

    We love cantaloupe! We go through 3-4 each week during the summer months! I never get sick of eating it!
  • I love cantaloupe! Almost as much as bananas. Thanks for the tips on how to choose the best ones.
  • I used to eat them but didn't like how I felt afterward. Found out I am allergic to them, along with many other fruits now. Getting old is a, fill-in-the-blank!
  • i"m thinking the salsa might be good.

    Wow,I knew about the potassium,but I didn't know about the beta carotene.That's good news,since cantaloupes are my favorite fruit!

    I liked cantaloupe and musk melon as a kid, but don't really like it much now. However, my husband and my children do, so I'm sure to buy it regularly at our farmer's market when in season! I'll eat a little bit, but there are so many other fruits in season at the same time that I prefer, so I'm not depriving myself of vitamins and minerals.

    I do enjoy watermelon (if it's not too sweet). You can make a refreshing salad with watermelon, feta cheese, a little olive oil and a tasty vinegar, mint or basil, and maybe some pine nuts. Great addition to a summertime brown bag lunch!
