Orange Honeydew Melon
Oval-to-round and a delicious cross between a cantaloupe and a honeydew, the very fleshy juicy orangish-yellow pulp of the orange honeydew melon is encased in a hard very yellow matching rind.
Spring onions are most often utilized raw. The whole onion can be flash blanched and grilled, which brings out more the robust and sweet elements of the onions, and makes them a bolder pair for fish and meats

Twentieth Century pears are typically available beginning in late summer.
The shape, size and color of the Twentieth Century pear resemble a large golden apple. Smooth and round, this pear is fairly large with a green-to-yellow thin skin. Offering a mild and delicate flavor, the creamy white flesh is crisp and fine-textured. Lightly sweet, low in acid, and mild to bland in flavor Twentieth Century pears are ready to eat as soon as they are picked from the tree.
A good source of vitamin C and potassium, pears provide a modest source of dietary fiber. One average pear contains about 100 calories.
Requiring longer cooking time than the common pear, this pear may be sautéed, baked or poached. Maintaining its dense and meaty texture, the delicate flavor actually intensifies when cooked. Cut fresh pears into thin slices and add to salads or serve as an edible garnish. Make a delicious fruit chutney and jam or try pickling with onions and spices. To store, keep refrigerated.
Also known as Nijisseiki, which translates to "20th Century" in Japanese, these pears are the bright flower of the Asian pear group.
World pear production is dominated by Asia, where more than two-thirds, or 13 million metric tons, of pears are grown. Twentieth Century Pears flourish in China and Japan and also on the west coast of the United States. Rather high in maintenance, the trees require specific thinning and careful attention to produce good sized fruit.
