With summer approaching and beautiful fruits coming into season, would you prefer watermelon or rockmelon (or in some States known as canteloupe)?

I love them both!
However I DO buy watermelon more often than rockmelon as I find it easier to eat at any time and I often eat it as a salad with a meal or mix it with grated cheese with a meal.

I think it is somehow more versatile.
It also makes a delightful juice when put in a blender.

I have not tried rockmelon yet. I love watermelon but can't compare as I have not tried the other one.

Oh I just realized I have had rockmelon. It is called muskmelon and cantaloupe in US and some other countries. I can say I love them both.

I've never tired watermelon, but I hate all other types of melon because the texture makes me gag.

I've never had rockmelon so i'd have to choose watermelon.

used to like them both but nowadays rockmelon, the waternelons are not the same as years ago they were a good red color and had black seeds very yummy , do not buy watermelons any more
I enjoy ALL melons,especially in colourful,refreshing fruit salad.However I recall the way my mumused to make rOCK Melon balls in homemade ginger beer as a delicious dessert when I was kid!! This was also eaten frozen,if ever there was any left over! What a fabulous icypole alternative!!
And then to top things off,I went to a restaurant some years back when I first arrived in Nth Qld,where Watermelon Slushie was served as an aperitif before the meal!! I confess to not having a firm favourite in Melon,as they are all so wonderful with their own distinct flavours and textures!
What a difficult question to answer! I love both. I like a chilled slice of either. I also like rockmelon in a fruit salad. Cubes of rockmelon can be nice with meat and salads. I like watermelon and onion salad. Mmmmm
I love both. I am presently growing a rockmelon vine in my garden which has HEAPS of little baby melons on it. Hopi I don't have to buy rockmelons over summer as they are just too expensive at the moment (averaging 4 - 5 dollars each). Watermelon tends to be nice and cheap and the kids love it too.
Watermelon I love and rockmelon I can eat a little of (had it up to my ears as a kid - always rockmelon and icecream) but won't eat either if chilled or straight from the fridge - I think chilling alters the texture of watermelon and rockmelon.
Also, I think any fruit put in the fridge and served reduces the impact of the flavour somehow. And berries, icy cold berries have a very much reduced flavour.
Spring is before summer! Watermelon wins for me! My eldest grown up daughter, can’t stand rockmelon. I’ve bought it sometimes, & it doesn’t have much taste, so ! Perhaps I was buying it out of season. I’ll eat them both if someone brings them to a picnic. The 1 in the photo, looks like another melon,who’s name I have forgotten. Rockmelon, I thought always had orange flesh.
Yes miro, I think you are right - it looks like a Honeydew. I find rockmelons can be very hit and miss . . . but a really good one is pure bliss.

Me . .
Nice, juicy, WATERMELON . . !
by Rice
That's it Rice, honeydew! thank you. I'll now be able to sleep tonight! (I just had a 'mental block' for 5 minutes, re the green melon!)

Watermelon, really cold, slurped over sink, or in bath, when I was a kid!

Rockmelon, with Prosciutto........yummo!
Water Melon as it is more refreshing.
