I'm not sure if you can eat canteloupe rinds, but watermelon rinds won't hurt you. You'd probably enjoy them a lot more if you made them into a batch of watermelon pickle, but that's an answer for a different question.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure you can eat the rinds, but why would you want to? They taste horrible!!!

Question Authority

Really?  So you've tried eating it?  I was interested in knowing because I don't like wasting.  If it's edible, and it doesn't taste bad, why not eat it?

Yes, I have eaten cantaloupe rinds (not intentionally), and yes they do not taste good, to me anyway. Everyone has their own opinion, and that's just mine, and maybe some people like them but there is only one way to find out...eat one:)

Question Authority

In addition to pesticides canteloupe is often contaminated with salmonella even if organic. Other rinds are not really tasty anyway except watermelon which is great pickled in sugar, vinegar and cloves --we have it every Thanksgiving (from a jar)..

If you hate to waste food and you have the space (and the interest) you can always get a dog. Or chickens; the dog won't eat melon rinds but chickens will eat ANYTHING! (I mean that literally, by the way... they will eat anything - it's disgusting.)

Only if the season is very short where you live. This is done to direct the vine's energy into ripening the fruit which has already set instead of setting more fruit. http://botanical-journeys-plant-guides.com/growing-honeydew-melons.html PR: wait... I: wait... L: wait... LD: wait ...
