Sweet Melon are small to medium-sized melons. They have a beige-green, rough, firm, and warty to lightly ribbed skin. Underneath the surface, the flesh is orange, thick, dense, and tender with a slightly sticky consistency. There is also a central cavity filled with fibers and ivory, oval seeds. Sweet Melos have a honeyed, musky, and floral aroma when ripe and will feel heavy for their size. The melon’s flesh has a distinct, sweet, floral, and fruity flavor and is primarily consumed as a fresh fruit. Sweet melons are an excellent source of vitamin C to strengthen the immune system, vitamin A to maintain healthy organ functioning, and beta-carotene, the orange pigment found in the melon’s flesh that provides antioxidant-like properties to protect the cells from free radical damage. The melons also contain fiber to regulate the digestive tract, potassium to balance fluid levels within the body, and lower amounts of magnesium, vitamin B6, folate, niacin, and thiamine.
