The cantaloupe originated in Iran, India and Africa. Cantaloupe or rock melon is a round melon with firm, orange, moderately-sweet flesh and a thin reticulated light-brown rind. The orange, sugary and fragrant flesh makes this fruit popular both as a dessert or main course. Top melon slices with yogurt and chopped mint. Add melon puree with peeled peaches for a healthy cold soup. Enjoy the cubes in a fruit salad, with fresh cream or as a topping on icecream.
