Stop trolling. You know cantaloupes are wrong. Honeydew is right.
If you weren't so daft you'd know that:
Originally, cantaloupe referred only to the non-netted, orange
-fleshed melons of Europe. However, in more recent usage, it has come to mean any orange-fleshed melon (C. melo
). Cantaloupe is the most popular variety of melon
in the United States.
A honeydew has a round to slightly oval shape, typically 15–22 cm (5.9–8.7 in) long. It generally ranges in weight from 1.8 to 3.6 kg (4.0 to 7.9 lb). The flesh is usually pale green in color, while the smooth peel ranges from greenish to yellow. Like most fruit
, honeydew has seeds
. Honeydew's thick, juicy, sweet flesh is often eaten for dessert
, and is commonly found in supermarkets
across the world. This fruit grows best in semiarid climates
and is harvested based on maturity, not size. Maturity can be hard to judge, but is based upon ground color ranging from greenish white (immature) to creamy yellow (mature).
Quality is also determined by the honeydew having a nearly spherical shape with a surface free of scars or defects. Also, a honeydew should feel heavy for its size and have a waxy (not fuzzy) surface.
Hence, after observing the above definitions, you should know that honeydew is the better melon and correct answer. Ergo, I am right and you are wrong.
