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.

Red radishes are available the year round.
The “hotness” of radishes results from the length of time they have grown. Radishes that grow too slowly, are heat and moisture stressed, or are very old are often “hot.” Old radishes will also generally split, so it is best to harvest them when they are younger. The distinctive radish flavor comes from a chemical called isothiocyanate, one so pungent that when isolated it makes a very nice organic pesticide.
Radishes, a member of the mustard family, brassicas, are cool season vegetables and taste best when grown in cool weather. The Red radish is grown for it's taproot: a small, scarlet globe with a crisp and peppery, translucent, white flesh. Their taproots range in diameter from one to three inches. The radish produces leaves that grow from the taproot above ground, which are also edible. They have the texture of watercress and a bit of its flavor, but with a great mustardy bite as well.
Radishes place in the culinary world may vary from region to region but they are an essential accoutrement to many traditional cuisines from Mexico to America, Asia to France. In Mexico you can find red radishes garnishing a plate of barbacoa or amid other garnishes on a taco. In France, the simple preparation of butter and course sea salt with radishes is a quintessential crudité. A quite unique use is in India, where grated radish is mixed with cornmeal to make a Punjabi corn cake called makkai ki roti.
Radishes count as one of the earliest garden vegetables, and are among the easiest to grow. Red radishes are a popular cultivar of Raphanus sativus. There are literally dozens of varieties of this wild mustard relative, including annuals with crispy round and elongated taproots in a variety of hues. Some of the varieties include Cherry Belle, Crimson Giant and Scarlet Globe.
