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.
It is the only lettuce type that does not occur in red form as well as green. Iceberg is the given name to dozens of cultivars of lettuce, all of which are adapted to specific planting regions and time periods.

Chilean Packham pears are available beginning in spring (fall in the Southern hemisphere) until mid summer.
Rich in flavor and medium to large in size the Chilean Packham pear has a pale-green bumpy skin that develops a yellow cast when fully ripe. Quite fragrant, the white firm flesh is deliciously sweet and juicy.
Sodium-free and cholesterol-free, pears are a good source of fiber and offer potassium, folate and vitamin C. An average pear contains about 100 calories.
Sliced or cubed Packham pears make a delicious addition to fruit and green salads. Great with grilled chicken. Poach in red wine for a delicious dessert. Slow to ripen, this variety usually takes three to seven days to fully ripen at room temperature. Hasten ripening by placing pears in a paper bag, will keep at room temperature for a week and up to a month in the refrigerator.
Packham is one of the major pear crops of Chile.
Originally developed in Australia, Packham pears are a fairly new strain. Grown in Chile, the principal pear cultivar is called Packham's Triumph. Growing on upright, fairly vigorous trees, bees are not particularly attracted to its flowers therefore an extra bee population is required for pollination.
