Honeyloupe melons are available during the summer months.
The Honeyloupe melon, AKA Galia and Passport melon, is an eighth generation hybrid variety of the honey ball melon, honeydew melon and a Cantaloupe. It was developed to improve upon the parent varieties to create a disease resistant melon.
The Honeyloupe is a sweet, high sugar content melon that takes the best characteristics of its parent fruits. Its rind is pale yellow lime, netless and smooth like a honeydew, whereas its flesh is coral orange, succulent and floral sweet, typical of a Cantaloupe. Average weight for ripe Honeyloupe melons range three to five pounds.
Enjoy as a breakfast fruit with yogurt. Great edible garnish for open face sandwiches and pita bread creations. Include on fresh fruit plates and appetizer platters. To store, refrigerate cut melon up to three days.
Honeyloupe melons grow best in the warm summer months in Mediterranean-like regions. The original Honeyloupe was developed in the 1960's by Frank Zink the University of California, Berkley.
