Specialty Muskmelons

2906-1372 (SPES-98NP) Cantaloupe or muskmelon (Cucumis melo) production is an important vegetable crop in Virginia. In 2001, Virginia producers grew 800 acres of cantaloupes valued at $1.4 million. However, there is much diversity in this group, with more types of melons than the traditional orange flesh cantaloupes and each having unique flavors, textures, and appearance.  DS Color 24#, 2 pages
