Melon and peanut dished up with cola (10)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

cantaloupe

Here is my best explanation:

'melon' is the definition.

(cantaloupe is a kind of melon)

'peanut dished up with cola' is the subsidiary indication.

'dished up with' is an anagram indicator.

'peanut' anagrammed with 'cola' gives 'cantaloupe'.

'and' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for cantaloupe that I've seen before include "musk melon", "Small to medium-sized melon with yellowish flesh", "Type of melon", "Small melon with ribbed skin", "Musk-melon", "fruit" and "Small melon variety".)
