Default Re: Odd Orange Honeydew

No, though it tastes more like a cantaloupe than a standard honeydew. It's skin looks like a standard honeydew, though.

From:
Antioxidant, Sugar, Mineral, and Phytonutrient Concentrations across Edible Fruit Tissues of Orange-Fleshed Honeydew Melon (Cucumis melo L.)
Quote:
Orange-fleshed honeydew is a cross between orange-fleshed cantaloupe and non-netted, green-fleshed honeydew.
