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.

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. Watercress, meaning "nose twister", scientific name Nasturtium officinale, is a member of the Cruciferea, along with cabbages, kales and mustards. It is a cool season aquatic and semi-aquatic perennial herb, though, much like arugula, it is used primarily as a lettuce green.
Watercress is an entirely edible, delicately textured green with lime colored leaflets that generally have three ovately shaped lobes. The leaves sprout from thin succulent stems that all connect to a a cluster of roots. The plant produces fragrant white flowers as it matures. At its height of maturity, watercress produces edible seeds, if left alone will self-sow. Each element of the plant carries flavors of pepper and mustard that become bolder with the plant's maturity or when grown out of season. Watercress provides a rich source of pollen, thus attracting bees throughout its flowering season.
All Cress varieties are rich in Vitamins A & C, iron and calcium. Watercress is considered a super food due to its cancer fighting antioxidants the body's detoxifying enzymes.
Watercress is native to Europe and Asia, with documentation of its existence dating back to 3,000 years ago to the Phoenicians, Ancient Greece and Portugal. It was cultivated from a wild plant in Europe in 100 A.D. Watercress was introduced to American in the 18th century though it has become commercially popular in the late 20th century. Watercress is one of the most widely used herbal greens in the world, with dozens of literal translations defining watercress as each culture's own.
