Galia melons are available spring to mid fall. Imported Costa Rican Galia melons are available beginning in winter.
Galia melons are a hybrid melon and member of the Cucurbitaceae family, a very broad family of traveling vines, including cucumbers and squashes. Other common marketing names are Middle Eastern melon, Passport, Mediterranean or Israeli melons.
The Galia melon has a lightly netted golden yellow rind with a pale glacial green succulent flesh that has a signature spicy sweet flavor with tropical and perfumed aromatics. This melon will continue to ripen when removed from the plant and because of its aromatics, it will permeate other foods.
To aid in selecting a ripe melon, press the end opposite of the stem. If ripe, it should yield with gentle pressure. Unlike most melons, Galias are at their very best chilled. Galia melons pair well with ginger, seafood, mint and soft cheeses. Use Galia melons in fruit salads as well as breakfast preparations and main dishes. Store unripe melons at room temperature. Refrigerate ripe melons in a plastic bag two to three days.
The Galia melon was developed in Israel. This variety is still cultivated primarily in Israel with very little exposure in North America. Galia melons are also grown in Latin America and Puerto Rico.
