Orange Flesh Honeydew Season
July – September
This melon is similar to the Honeydew on the outside but has a similar interior color, taste and aroma that of a Cantaloupe. This melon generally has a distinct aroma and very sweet flavor.
To find a ripe Orange-Flesh look for a light creamy rind and a sugary aroma.
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.
