These melons have the best of both worlds: orange flesh with a taste of both honeydew and cantaloupe. This melon is a hybrid cross between a cantaloupe and honeydew. It has a smooth, thin yellow skin and a creamy orange interior. It is both juicy and sweet combining the best of both melons, though it tastes more like honeydew than cantaloupe. Like with any type of honeydew melon, the best way to select a ripe fruit is by the feel of the rind. When the rind has a somewhat tacky, sticky feel to it, the melon will be ripe. That stickiness is the fruit sugar coming to the surface of the melon as it ripens.
