Has anyone else experienced ripe, delicious, cantaloupe with up to half of the flesh bright green, and the rest orange?
Nursery plants, labeled Hales Best, normal appearance on the outside, but 40% green on one half and normal orange on the balance. Taste and texture of green and orange is identical, and very good.
Orange portion on the bottom side next to ground and green on the top side.
Green portion same color as the usual green rim next to rind.

Ernie - I haven't seen anything like you describe, but I have noticed the "Tasty Bites" melons were not as deep an orange as they usually are. And, the area between the rind and the orange part was thicker and pale green. I figured it was caused either by the heat, or the seeds. They taste wonderful, and that's all that matters.

I've had some volunteer melons that tasted like pure sugar. Always a nice surprise when volunteers turn out to be worth the trouble of growing them.
