As the name implies, Orange Candy Melons are sweet like candy but not sticky sweet. Instead, this variety has just enough tropical tang to balance the high sugar content, which makes for a really easy melon to love. This variety stands out amongst other melons for its rich golden-yellow skin, and bright orange flesh. Expect a similar flavor profile as Honeydew melons, but with more tropical notes and a little more pizazz.

Chilled melon slices are a refreshing snack or a healthy addition to breakfast. Chefs in our test kitchen love savory pairings like salty prosciutto, zippy arugula, or fresh mint. But the flavor combos and applications don’t stop there! Try melon with chile crisp or pickled red onions for an extra boost of flavor.

Melissa’s Orange Candy Melons are hand-selected for excellent quality. Choose firm fruit with a sweet fragrance. Look for fruit heavy for its size, yielding slightly under pressure at the stem. Keep cut or ripe fruit in the refrigerator for up to three days. Ripen at room temperature.
