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.

Cornhusks are available year round.
A few years ago a new style husk was introduced to the U.S. market called "enconchada". This refers to the conch shaped shell of the stacked husks. The higher quality enconchada style husks usually come in sizes ranging from 7"-9".
Actual husks from corn, the husks are dried for wrapping special food mixtures.
Various meat and vegetable fillings and other savory mixtures can be baked or steamed in corn husk wrapped tamales. The corn husks are not edible and are removed before eating. To prepare, soak in warm water just until pliable; remove any silk strands; wash thoroughly. Cover with warm water; let stand two hours or until soft. To store, keep in a cool dry place.
A cuisine tradition, dried cornhusks are especially popular used for wrapping food in Southwestern cooking. In Southern Mexico, tamales are wrapped in banana leaves. But in Northern Mexico, tamales are wrapped in cornhusks. Traditionally, tamales are made with dried cornhusks that have been soaked until pliable. Native to the New World, corn and its derivatives has been a very valuable food crop at least since the Incas first cultivated this staple vegetable. Today's modern corn is actually a tall annual grass and all types of corn are simply varieties of one single species, Zea mays.
