Both cantaloupe and honeydew are members of the muskmelon family and both are great additions to any summertime spread. Let’s see how the two compare:
🍈 Appearance: Cantaloupe has a darker, netted rind with orange flesh while honeydew has a lighter, smooth rind and green flesh
🍈 Nutrition: Both are nearly identical in calories, macros, and water content, but cantaloupe has more than twice as much vitamin C and over 60% more vitamin A. Either one is a great, healthy choice with plenty of vitamins and beneficial plant compounds.
🍈 Taste and Texture: Again, both are very similar but honeydew tends to be slightly sweeter and more firm than cantaloupe.
