Cantaloupe has a nasty aftertaste to me, so I'd go with Honeydew.

I just started eating honey dew melon this year. I cannot bring myself to eat cantaloupe.

I love both, but you more often find good cantaloupe than honeydew and just okay honeydew is gross.

Just the smell of melon makes me feel ill...

All things being equal honeydew in season is vastly superior to cantaloupe - however it's so difficult to get a good honeydew.

I'm so glad to see that more people don't like melon!! Usually when I say that I get looked at like I have 5 heads.

I like both but unfortunately I get itchy eating them!

Honeydew, but yeah, have to agree with the above being terrible photos. The cantaloupe especially seems overripe.

Definitely cantaloupe, I actually don't like honeydew at all! I love eating salt on my cantaloupe and watermelon. Yum!

i dont know how youre so in tuned to my personal thoughts on food. this summer, ive been a little bit addicted to fruit salad but i HATE HATE HATE cantelope and honeydew melon. theyre too sweet- but not in a good way. so instead of mango & strawberries & blueberries & pineapple, i get a salad filled with these cheap, filler fruits.

I like both, but I prefer cantaloupe because I think they're riper...Honeydews are usually underripe when I buy them. I grow my own cantaloupes, so they get a chance to fully ripen on the vine and really get a good flavor.

Ugh, gross. Only foods I hate are southern foods (except cornbread), asparagus and Honeydew Melons and Cantaloupe...Watermelon though....yummmmm!

I fourth the "I love both" option... But only if they're just the right ripeness. Mushy, overripe melon or hard, flavorless melon is no good!
