Cantaloupe/Muskmelon Varieties

View Quick Facts Chart

Our wide selection of cantaloupe and muskmelon varieties include Eastern type melons for the home gardener or fresh market grower. These melon varieties include many traditional melon varieties as well as new and recent introductions.

What's the difference between a cantaloupe and muskmelon? Cantaloupes is a type of muskmelon, but not all muskmelons are cantaloupes! The two melon types differ in flavor and appearance. Cantaloupes have a netting-like skin with slight ribbing, while muskmelons tend to have smoother, deep-ribbed skin. With some exceptions, muskmelons are more popularly grown on the East coast, and cantaloupes are more common on the west coast.

Studies show cantaloupe gives us a natural energy boost and has been shown to improve metabolism, vision, and digestion. Muskmelon has been shown to aid blood pressure and vision.
