The Sharlyn melon has a cracked skin with tan and yellow-orange coloring. Superficially resembling an elongated Cantaloupe, the Sharlyn does not possess the sweet unctuous flavor of Cantaloupes, rather a more restrained balance of sweetness
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.

Fava bean tendrils are available at farmers markets in the spring.
A tendril is a specialized stem, leaf or petiole with a thin threadlike shape used by climbing plants for support and attachment. There are only a certain lineage of legumes that form evolved tendrils: peas, sweet peas and in this case fava beans.
Fava tendrils are the thread, leaflet and blossom of the fava bean plant. They have the flavor of fava beans with the grassy sweetness of the plant's foliage. They are overlooked and underused as a culinary commodity, but their sweet unique flavor and appearance should revere them otherwise.
Fava tendrils can be used fresh or treated as a wilting green; utilizing a little heat, olive oil, sea salt and pepper and the greens are transformed into a substantial element of any savory dish.
The earliest and most comprehensive study of tendrils was Charles Darwin's monograph, "The Movement and Habits of Climbing Plants", originally published in 1865.
The fava bean dates back to the European Iron Age. A bean in name only, botanically the fava is a type of vetch. Like the bean, the vetch is also a legume but the vetch is a climbing or twining plant that prefers a cool moist climate and is even tolerant to a light frost, unlike the bean that thrives best in the heat of long and nurturing summer days.
