Santa Claus melon season is late spring and summer. During the winter months, Santa Claus melons are shipped from South America.
This Santa Claus melon AKA Christmas melon and December melon is a cultivar of the Cantaloupe family. It is a long-season melon with a long shelf life both on the vine and off.
The green and gold speckled Santa Claus melon resembles a small football-shaped watermelon. Its flesh is succulent in texture with a mildly sweet flavor and equally subtle fragrance. The color of its hard shell is a sign of this melon's ripeness. The brighter the yellow, the riper and sweeter it is. The ripest Santa Claus melon will have a soft blossom end that yields to gentle pressure and a vibrant yellow hue. Because of its thick skin, this melon doesn't release a signifying aroma when ripe. An average Santa Claus melon weighs five pounds.
Use Santa Clause melons where ever a recipe calls for Cantaloupe. Pair with cured meats, soft cheeses, mint, red onion, citrus juice and zest or tomatoes. Use in fresh salads or appetizers. The Santa Claus melon will keep, refrigerated, for up to two months.
The Santa Claus melon's name is derived from its late season harvest, often arriving near Christmas. Regardless of its name it is primarily grown during the hot and dry summer months in temperate climates.
