The biggest problem, besides their existence, is that if they are in a fruit salad everything tastes like melon/cantaloupe.

Sharlyns and Crenshaws are my favorite, though I prefer a cantaloupe to a honeydew.

They’re both horrible and yet they make up about 75% of fruit salad. They literally make people’s health worse by forcing them to order potato chips or fries instead. What vile, vile food.

Look at this bullshit. You are looking at the fruit bowl of every corporate free lunch spread ever. At least there are grapes in this one.

Surprised so many people in this thread don’t like melons. Lots of them are really freakin tasty.

Strawberry though - that’s a fruit that I could do without. Too sweet/icky.

I'll go honeydew if only because I eat way more cantaloupe but a ripe honeydew is sweeter. Fruit salad not the way to enjoy because the flavors are subtle and gets destroyed by whatever liquid soils the bottom. To this day I remember the slightly acidic taste of the melons (all tasted the same) during a fruit salad kick as a kid. Can see why some would dislike that but it's pretty easy to get fresh melon anywhere.

I'm in the All Melons Suck camp. Don't like any of them. But I voted canteloup, because my son loves them.

I don't think AB has ever actually seen a fruit salad or fruit cup. They're always full of melons.

I love ripe cantaloupe.

But I never buy it because the odds of getting a tasty one up here suck, and I'd spend $3 for something inedible.

Also I’ve only seen apples in about 10% of fruit salads and I’m not sure I’ve ever seen peaches.

Melon, grapes, strawberry, blueberry, pineapple, and sometimes kiwi.

I just did a google image search for fruit salad and it took 13-14 images before there was melon. I’ve seen melon in cut up fruit selections with grapes or on a breakfast bar but that’s not what I call fruit salad.

I think I was confusing mandarin oranges and peaches on that one.

Yup. That’s just cut fruit, or maybe mixed fruit even. I’ve seen that and never called it fruit salad. I’ll post a pic when I get a computer out.

^That is exactly what every American I've ever encountered other than you calls "fruit salad."

Are you thinking of fruit cocktail? I remember that being a big deal in the 80's and was cut up pears/peaches/grapes/cherries drowned in like a pint of corn syrup:

Google shows every fruit salad you ever wished you had. The stuff thrust upon you by the corporate imperialists always (ab)uses melon like it's green Easter basket shredding.

This whole bowl tastes like cantaloupe and honeydew. It smells like it also and that horrible smell permeates every pore of all those helpless strawberries and grapes. H and C smell like they’re already rotting when you cut them open.
