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.
Mache has been cultivated in France since the 17th century, and in France it is known as doucette. It is also known as "lamb's lettuce" because its leaves resemble the size and shape of a lamb's tongue.

Upland watercress is available year round.
Cress is a general name that groups a class of sharply flavored greens that are used in salads and as potherbs. There are three major cresses. Upland watercress, scientific name Barbarea verna, is one of these perennial greens that should not be confused with watercress or pepper grass and thus, should be appropriately named Upland Cress. Other common names include Normandy Cress, Dryland Cress and Bank Cress.
Upland Cress is both delicate and petite geometrically shaped lime green leaves and razor thin stems' featherweight composition is married with flavors full of pepper and spice. Upland Cress becomes more pungent, often acrid and less succulent with maturity. Maturing plants will produce fragrant yellow flowers with the same delicate texture and overt flavors. The entire plant is edible.
All Cress varieties are rich in Vitamins A & C, iron and calcium.
Upland Cress is known as a European green though its parentage can be traced to China. It is a cool season crop that is both cultivated and grows wild and weed-like. It prefers moist sandy clay soils rich in nitrogen and organic matter. Like most greens, Upland Cress prefers full sun to thrive, though the plant will bolt in hot climates.
