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.

Curley Endive is available year-round but its peak season is spring through summer.
Curly endive grows in loose heads of narrow, lacey, outer leaves with curling green-rimmed tips. Inside the head is a compact heart of off-white leaves. The outer, darker leaves have a distinctive, slightly bitter flavor that is less pronounced in the lighter, inner leaves.
Curly endive is high in folate, fiber, and vitamins A and K, making it especially nutritious for pregnant women.
Curly endive is a bitter, chicory green that can add texture and flavor to a number of dishes. Add chopped curly endive to vegetable or bean soups and cook until just wilted. Saute curly endive and add to mashed potatoes or mashed root vegetables. Chop endive and toss with sliced nectarines and walnuts or chopped watercress topped with croutons. Curly endive keeps refrigerated for one to two weeks.
Endive, escarole, and chicory are believed to have been included in the bitter herbs that were consumed by the Israelites during Passover, before their exodus from Egypt.
Curly endive is a member of the chicory family of greens. Curly endive can mistakenly be referred to as chicory, loose-leaf chicory, chicory endive, curly chicory, frisée, and frise. This is because the term "chicory" in the U.S. or France refers to what the British call endive and endive in Britain turns into chicory in France and America.
