IDENTIFYING EASTERN CANTALOUPE

During the season, many grocery stores and local markets will identify their cantaloupe produce bin as either Athena (a specific variety) or eastern cantaloupe. The bottom line- if it’s grown east of the Rockies – it’s a variety that thrives in a wetter climate which contributes to the richer flavor.
