Muskmelon is firm, round in shape, orange in color, with moderately-sweet flesh and a thin reticulated light-brown rind. It originated in India and Africa. It is normally eaten as a fresh fruit, or used in salads.
Choose a muskmelon that is yellow-orange in color and firm. Select a melon that seems heavy for its size and does not have bruises or overly-soft spots.
People who are taking medications for heart diseases should avoid the use of muskmelon as it can interact with the medicine and cause potassium levels to increase in the blood.(2)
