Sugar melon is a type of cantaloupe that is about 5-6 in in diameter and weighing between 1–2 kg. Nearly round in shape, it has thick, sweet, orange flesh and a silvery gray, ribbed exterior.
They can be eaten raw or added to sweet dishes and hearty salads as well as to raw ham, salami and spicy kinds of cheese. They may be cubed or put into balls for punch or swimming in sparkling wine as a summer drink. In addition, they can be mashed for a dessert sauce or sorbet.
