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.

Gold raspberries are available spring, summer and early fall.
Golden raspberries are a primarily self-pollinating and everbearing bramble berry and member of the family, Rosaceae along with strawberries and blackberries. Other sources of pollinating are bees, wind and the cross pollination of other raspberry plants.
The Gold raspberry is similar in characteristics to the Red raspberry in all aspects except that it is gold in color with pink hues (which suggests it may have been originally bred from a red raspberry). It is an aggregate fruit with individual drupelets that are held together by very fine, nearly invisible hairs. When picked, the stem and the receptacle of the raspberry stay on the plant, leaving a hallow center within the fruit. The Gold raspberry is fuzzy, fragile and extremely sweet with just a subtle hint of tartness. Once ripe, it has a minimal shelf-life.
Use Golden raspberries as you would red raspberries. Bake them into muffins, scones, bread puddings, or layer them into trifles and parfaits. Cook down with sugar and lemon juice for a uniquely colored jam. Puree, strain for seeds and combine with fresh white peach puree for a brightly flavored but delicately colored sorbet. Use to garnish flutes of champagne and other light cocktails. Fresh raspberries are perishable and should be kept very dry and refrigerated until ready to use.
The Golden raspberry is a the hybrid result of breeding numerous cultivars. There are several Gold raspberry varieties, each with different origins throughout the world, ranging from Korea to the United States. Golden raspberry plants are somewhat cold hardy, such as the common Red raspberry. They exist primarily as erect, upright bushes. Gold raspberries, though considered superior in flavor have limited commercial value compared to the far more ubiquitous Red raspberry. They are primarily a farmers market berry.
