  • I love fresh muskmelon right off the vine! - 1/10/2014 11:50:15 PM
  • 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?? - 7/29/2013 10:22:59 AM
  • I love to blend my fruits. - 7/26/2013 5:58:36 PM
  • 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... - 9/19/2010 8:23:26 AM
  • 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! - 9/19/2010 7:56:23 AM
  • 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! - 8/5/2010 9:56:44 AM

    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. - 7/29/2010 11:16:51 AM

    We love cantaloupe! We go through 3-4 each week during the summer months! I never get sick of eating it! - 7/29/2010 7:30:10 AM
  • I love cantaloupe! Almost as much as bananas. Thanks for the tips on how to choose the best ones. - 4/20/2010 2:36:20 PM
  • 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! - 4/19/2010 1:56:47 PM
  • i"m thinking the salsa might be good. - 2/2/2010 6:30:35 AM

    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! - 9/28/2009 4:34:19 PM
  • 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! - 9/20/2009 11:39:52 AM
