The small, organic Can-A-Dew, is in the Horn of Plenty and organic crates this week. It is a bit of a departure for us in that it is not something that can be eaten out of hand but must be cut. It is a once-in-a-blue-moon kind of thing that I thought you'd enjoy its unique and tasty. Essentially, once we get past the cool marketing name, the reality of this organic melon is it is a special winter variety of the Galia melon. It looks like a Cantaloupe on the outside and is green like a Honeydew inside. To judge its
ripeness, put your two thumbs on the bottom of the stem end. It is ripe when it gives slightly under pressure. If you have a Steve Austin bionic melon eye you can notice a nuanced change to the color behind the netted skin from a green to a lighter green when it is ripe. Cut and enjoy with friends at the office, it's a neat treat.
