July – September
This is a traditional Hami melon that is a very popular variety among people of Middle East descent. We believe it was originally cultivated in Uzbekistan hundreds of years ago. It is a very large melon (3 or 4 count.) This melon also has a crunchy sweet consistency like a watermelon.
To find a ripe Hami melon look for a dark gold color around the fruit.
Since melons grow on the ground, it’s only logical to make sure they’re perfectly clean on the outside before cutting them. Run cool water over the melon before eating to remove any surface dirt that may remain.
Turlock Fruit melons are picked vine-ripened so they should immediately be stored in a refrigerator. Cover cut melons with plastic and store no more than 3 days.
