We grow a wide variety of melons, in an attempt to make sure we get a crop. Central Vermont is a decidedly difficult place to grow good melons, a plant that loves heat and a long growing season. We grow galia- and charentais-type melons, as well as cantaloupes, and watermelons with different colored flesh. These are nothing like your supermarket melons—they’re bursting with flavor and juiciness!
How to use them:
In fruit salad
Sliced and eaten as a snack
Balled, then wrapped with prosciutto for a traditional appetizer
With yogurt as a breakfast, snack, or dessert
