The main varieties of melons include the Cantaloupe, Galia, Honeydew and Watermelon. Each have their own distinctive refreshing qualities and taste. The Cantaloupe has a sweet pale orange flesh encased in a slightly netted texture grey-green skin. Honeydews are more oval shaped with a yellow-green flesh and smoother yellow skin. The Galia melon is a hybrid of Cantaloupe and Honeydew, with a distintive flavour captured from its pale green flesh. The skin is more of a golden yellow colour with a netted texture. The Watermelon has a smooth pale to dark green rind with a juicy and succulent red-pink flesh, which can be black seeded or seedless. The light green-white rind is also edible and full of nutrients, but does not have the same sweet taste as the rest of the fruit.
