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.
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

Rutabagas are typically harvested in the autumn and winter months.
Although rutabaga is a classic cellar vegetable, it is best purchased fresh at your local farmers market while the root is still tender-firm, sweet and moist. The longer it is out of the ground, the drier the root gets and is likely to be tough to cut and too tough to eat, and its flavor decreases with age.
The "American Purple Top Yellow" rutabaga is a cool season Swedish variety of American origin, a long-time standard for home and market use. The rutabaga produces purple-topped, globular roots with pale yellow, fine-grained skin and flesh. Generally harvested when it is at least four inches in diameter, the rutabaga's creamy, yellow flesh is crisp and peppery-sweet when raw and soft and sweet when cooked properly.
Like other root vegetables, rutabaga has a natural sweetness the is enhanced by cooking. Diced rutabaga and slowly saute with apples and onions until caramelized. Toss thinly sliced rutabaga with soy sauce, vinegar, sugar and garlic then serve fresh as a side dish. Boil diced rutabaga and toss with herbed vinaigrette and Israeli couscous for a side dish. Steam or boil diced rutabaga until soft, them mash with cooked carrots and flavor with minced lemongrass. Rutabaga will keep in cool, dark storage for months.
The International Rutabaga Curling Championship takes place annually at the Ithaca (Greece) Farmers' Market on the last day of the market season.
