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.

The season for the ollalieberry is very short, they are available for a couple of weeks in late spring. You can sometimes find them at your local farmers market.
The ollalieberry is an aggregate fruit of the genus Rubus, within the rose family. It has a battery of ancestors that contribute to its complex origins, growing abilities and it's characteristic. It is a cross between a blackberry a loganberry and a youngberry, of which both the loganberry and the youngberry are hybrids that were developed by berries that were cross-pollination with raspberries. This may sound complicated and perhaps it is. The ollalieberry is no ordinary berry, rather a unique bramble creating a whole better than the sum of its parts.
The ollalieberry has the initial appearance of an elongated blackberry, its skin tone a glossy onyx with ruby highlights. Like its parent blackberry, it has no hollow center, rather its stem end closed as it remains intact when picked. The ollalieberry is balanced in flavor, both sweet and perfectly tart, tender and juicy. As it is with most berries, its coloring will stain upon touching. The ollalieberry's fragility when ripe make for a shortened shelf-life.
With their perfect balance of sweet and tart, Ollalieberries make superior pies and jams, tarts and ice creams. Blend them into smoothies and milkshakes, or fold them into muffins and coffee cakes. Cook down into a sweet compote to top cheesecake or ice cream. Highly perishable, use immediately upon purchase.
"Olalli" comes from the Northwestern Native American's word for berry. Hence, when translated, ollalieberry equals berry berry.
The ollalieberry was developed by George F. Waldo in 1949 for the U.S. Department of Agriculture at the Oregon State University. Though it was developed in Oregon, the more temperate coastal regions of California proved to be more suitable growing regions for the ollalieberry plants and thus, it is primarily cultivated throughout Northern and Central rural areas. Ollalieberries are a very small production fruit crop compared to the common red raspberry and blackberry but they have a home in summer farmers markets and their ability to withstand soil and plant diseases make them a choice bramble to plant in home gardens.
