Melon, Arancino (Organic)
Cucumis melo. 80 days.
A highly fragrant and delicious Italian cantaloupe variety originally from Sicily. Fruit grow to about 6-8″ across, weighing 2-4 lbs. Beautifully netted, slightly ridged, with bright orange flesh (arancino means ‘orange’ in Italian). Relatively firm texture, ease of identifying ripeness, great color and size make this melon very well suited to market farm production. Definitely on our list of excellent melons! Try making prosciutto e melone by wrapping chunks of Arancino with thinly sliced Italian ham. Yum!
