Muskmelons are large to medium-sized melons and have a round to oblong shape with blunt, curved ends. There are several types of melons generally labeled as muskmelons, some with beige-green, rough, firm, and warty to lightly ribbed skin. Underneath the surface, the orange flesh is thick, dense, aqueous, and succulent. The flesh is mainly orange, but just below the rind, there is a fine green ring.
The muskmelon's flesh has a distinct, sweet, floral, and fruity flavor and is primarily consumed as fresh fruit. The seeds are also edible and are commonly roasted and salted as a savory, nutty snack. You can also make smoothies and ice cream with this kind of melon.
Once mature, the melons should be consumed immediately for the best quality and flavor. Muskmelon slices can be stored in the refrigerator in a sealed container for three days.
