Now that Bermuda Onions are in season, how could life possibly get any better?

Oh yeah. That's right. Melons.

If there is one thing we love here at Weiser Family Farms, it is melons. This season we plan to have 8 different varieties of melons. Eight! That might seem a little overwhelming, but don't worry. Next weekend we will start with two varieties of melons:


Butterscotch Melons- These small melons have a pale green skin and a two-toned green and orange flesh. Many people think the flesh tastes like butterscotch candy because it is so sweet, which is where the name comes from. Ripe melons are paler in color with a sweet sugary aroma.

Cavaillon Melons- These melons are fragrant and have a high sugar content.  They are lime green and have ribbed green stripes.  When the Cavaillon is ripe the skin turns a cream color, the ribbed stripes change to darker green and the stem begins to crack and pulls off easily.

Sounds good, right?

Check out your local California farmer's market next weekend for the first pick of melons.
