xx-NO MORE THIS SEASON-xx-ASSORTED MELON (1)

Regular price $3.00 Sale

One organically grown cantaloupe-type melon from our farm.  Funny story about these melons:  We have no way to be certain exactly which one we're sending to you!  The vines have spread so much that all the different rows have become intertwined, and most of them look nothing like the pictures on the seed packets.  What we CAN tell you is that you will either get an Ambrosia Cantaloupe, or a Creme De La Creme melon.  IMPORTANT UPDATE:  Since last week we've discovered that the best tasting melons are the ones that sit on the counter until they're so soft that you assume they're overripe.  Even if they smell amazing, the flavor will not have reached its full potential until the rind gives when you press it.  The yellow-rinded melons are also at their best when there are darkened brownish patches on them which make you think you've waited too long.  We've also discovered that when we DID wait too long on the cantaloupes and part of the melons have rotted and turned watery, we can pour/scrape out the goo part and rinse off the fruit that's left---and when we've done so, the taste is hands down the best cantaloupe we've ever tried.  Crazy, I know.  And I'm not suggesting you try to wait THAT long to eat it, just know that if you accidentally do you should NOT toss the whole thing in the compost!  Because these melons aren't growing true to their description, we're having to do a bit of guessing on whether they're ready to be picked.  So if you wait until the rind is soft and still happen to get one with a disappointing flavor, please don't hesitate to email us and we'll issue you a refund in the form of a credit towards your next order!
