Orangedew

Orangedew Season

July – September

Orangedew is a cross between a honeydew and a cantaloupe. It has a smooth exterior like a honeydew with an orange interior. It is extremely sweet, flavorful and aromatic. It is higher in beta carotene than a cantaloupe and has a flavor that is preferred by consumers. Orangedew is only available under the King O’ The West and Peacock labels. It is the best orange fleshed melon you will ever eat!

Cleaning

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.
