Summertime is melon time, and August and September are noted for the many special varieties of melons that come to market.
One of the sweetest melons you'll ever have the pleasure to eat is the orange-fleshed honeylope.
As you've probably already guessed, this melon is a cross between the honeydew and the cantaloupe, and it has many of the best qualities of both.
On the outside, the resemblance to the honeydew is strong, but it also has a little of the netting of the cantaloupe. On the inside it's all cantaloupe, with a beautiful salmon-colored flesh.
