Melons of the Week


This week we have two more melons new to the market: The Ogen and Baby Canary.

The Baby Canary melon is bright yellow, with not netting on the outside, and white flesh inside.  It has a very small seed cavity and is super sweet.  Really.  It is one of the sweetest melons we carry.  It almost tastes like eating a melon with sugar on top.  These are great for fruit salad.

The Ogen melon is originally from Israel.  It is yellow with green stripes on the rind and has green flesh inside.  Sometimes we call them "tropical melons" because they kind of taste like a guava.  They are very juicy and when they are ripe they become soft like an avocado.
