Rapisarda melons are smaller than many domestic cantaloupes, averaging only about 10 centimeters in diameter and weighing between 2.5 and 3 pounds. Their thin rind is covered in a rough netting typical of a muskmelon, with equally spaced dark green sutures running vertically from end to end. Beneath the rind, the flesh surrounds a small central the seed cavity. Its texture is dense and juicy with floral aromatics and a classic musky scent. These melons have an extremely high Brix level (how they measure the amount of sugars in fruit) measuring between 12 and 14, making it one of the sweetest melons in North America.
The Rapisarda melon is an excellent source of beta-carotene, folic acid, potassium, vitamin C, and dietary fiber.
