The Definitive Guide To All The Different Melons

By | source:Here Jun 24th, 2023

Melons are one of the best things about summer. They’re sweet, juicy, and perfect for eating just as they are or in a fruit salad. But there are so many different types of melons out there! What’s the difference between cantaloupe and watermelon? Is honeydew a type of cucumber? What’s up with all these different varieties? Here’s everything you need to know:

Ananas Melon

Ananas melon is a sweet, juicy melon with an unmistakable pineapple flavor. The seeds are edible and can be removed from the fruit before serving. The Ananas Melon is native to India, where it’s also known as the Pineapple Melon (though it isn’t actually related). This tropical-looking fruit has an oval shape, green skin and yellow flesh that turns orange when ripe–it looks just like a pineapple! The flesh is crunchy but tender, similar in texture to watermelon or cantaloupe when cut into cubes; however there is no need for you worry about cutting yourself on any hard rinds here!


Apollo Melon

Apollo Melon is a hybrid melon, though it’s not entirely clear how it was created. It’s believed to be a cross between a cantaloupe and honeydew melon. The Apollo Melon has creamy, sweet flesh with an aroma that resembles coconut and vanilla bean–which may explain why it’s sometimes referred to as “coconut” or “vanilla” melons!


Autumn Sweet Melon

Autumn Sweet Melon is another variety that has a similar shape and taste to cantaloupe, though it’s slightly more juicy. The skin of an Autumn Sweet Melon is thin and green in color with stripes running down the sides of its rind. The flesh of this melon should be firm when ripe, but not hard or mushy; if you have trouble finding one that isn’t too soft or hard for your liking, look for one with a deep orange color inside as well as just under its rind where there are no marks from handling (or “scratches”). To eat it on its own or use in recipes like smoothies or salads: cut off both ends so that only about 2 inches remains; then slice into pieces using either an apple corer tool or knife blade–it doesn’t matter which method you choose since both will work fine!


Bailan Melon

The Bailan melon is a Chinese melon that is also known as the “Chinese Melon.” It is not a very well known fruit in the US, but it has been growing in popularity since it was introduced to America in 2008. The melon itself is quite sweet and contains many seeds (about 100 per fruit).


Banana Melon

The banana melon, also known as Buffkin or Sugar Banana, is a type of muskmelon. It has dark-green skin and yellow flesh that’s sweet and tangy. Like other muskmelons, this fruit is often used to make juice, smoothies and popsicles.


Bitter Melon

Bitter melon, also known as bitter gourd or momordica charantia, is a fruit native to India and Asia. It has been used in many Asian cuisines since ancient times. The name “bitter melon” comes from its bitter taste; however this particular fruit also has health benefits such as lowering blood sugar levels and reducing inflammation. Bitter Melon helps prevent diabetes by lowering blood sugar levels and reduces inflammation caused by arthritis


Melons are a great addition to any meal, and there are so many different types to choose from! If you’re looking for something sweet and juicy, then try one of the muskmelons or honeydew melon varieties. If you want something with a little more bite, go for the cantaloupes or Ananas Melon. And if you want something unique that nobody else will have on their table at dinner parties? Try one of these lesser-known varieties: Apollo Melon or Autumn Sweet Melon!
