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.

Chives have a wide variety of culinary uses in traditional dishes in France and Sweden. They are also an ingredient of the gräddfil sauce served with the traditional herring dish served at Swedish midsummer celebrations. In Poland, chives are served with quark cheese. For a delicious salad, toss in chilled soba noodles and prawns.
Early Romans used chives to relieve pain from sunburn or a sore throat. Romanian Gypsies have used chives in fortune telling. It was believed that bunches of dried chives hung around a house would ward off disease and evil.
Chives have been cultivated in Europe since the Middle Ages until the 15th centuries, although their usage dates back 5000 years. The first recorded use of chives occurred in China in about 3000 B.C. Historically, Chives have been grown and domesticated in ancient China. The plant was brought back to Europe by Marco Polo, the Venetian explorer who traveled to China and Central Asia. Chives are native to both Europe and Asia and grows wild all across both regions. A variety found in the Alps is the one nearest to what is generally cultivated today.
