Apparently Melon season is here !
over the last few weeks I've had some incredible melons from Monterey Market. one looked like a cantaloupe but had green flesh .... very fragrant and sweet - also juicy. and last night ...... a light skinned melon ( like a honeydew ) but with orange flesh ...... lush, juicy and very sweet. would normally expect melons this ripe in another month or so ...... whatever is going on ....... I'm enjoying it !
Just a couple weeks ago, I noticed that Monterey Market had labeled an organic melon (of course I can't remember the name) as "sweet"--and I grabbed it--and it....was not (sweet).
Same thing happened this week w/ organic peaches there.
So I thought, I must be too early.
But based on your report, I will hurry back.
Are your melons with the reverse-colored flesh labeled?
p.s. I HAVE been getting amazing organic strawberries there.
Orange-flesh honeydew is one of my favorites and throughout all the years I've had it, has been consistently good and more consistent in sweetness and texture then regular honeydew and cantaloupe throughout the entire season.
Usually, there's a sticker marking it as orange-flesh honeydew, but visually even from the outside, it has a more orange-ish tinge when put side by side next to regular honeydew.
