These are the familiar American cantaloupes with orange flesh and a corky "net" on the skin. Sometimes called muskmelons because of their "musky," sweet taste. We offer varieties of both Eastern (deeply ribbed skin) and Western (smooth-skinned) melons. The texture and complexity of flavor of Johnny's varieties cannot be compared to run-of-the-mill supermarket cantaloupes, which tend to be very firm and only mildly sweet in flavor. To compare disease resistances, days to maturity, and other fruit characteristics, see our Cantaloupe Varieties Comparison Chart.
