Thursday's Side Dish: Cantabella Melons
A hybrid variety
This rare and gentically engineered melon possesses crisp and refreshing qualities in flavor and texture. It's so new that we can't find a thorough and detaled write-up anywhere on the internet. Look for light yellow and orange flesh that's really sweet in a typical ripe cantabella melon. These melons are a hybrid cross between charente melons and cantaloupes. They're in season right now through the hot summer months. Substitute one for your usual the grapefruit or banana at breakfast time.
