How Many Cups of Fruit Are in a Pound of Cantaloupe?
Most of the time, all I want to do with a ripe cantaloupe is slice it up and eat it as is, but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be tossed in salads, smoothies, or cocktails as well. When using cantaloupe in a recipe, often a specific amount of cups are called for. How many cups of fruit are actually in that cantaloupe?
Pounds of Cantaloupe to Cups
The average medium-sized cantaloupe weighs about three pounds and yields roughly four-and-a-half cups of cubed fruit. If you’re judging it only on weight, one pound equals just under one-and-a-half cups of cubed cantaloupe.
1 pound of cantaloupe = about 1 1/2 cups of cubed cantaloupe
