Melon - Juan Canary

Description

Oval and smooth, similar to the Honeydew, the Canary Melon is very fragrant with pale green to cream colored flesh, crisp and firm with delicate, sweet flavor. Its aromatics linger with nuances of banana and pineapple and a slightly musky finish.

Applications/Techniques

Use in salads, granita, as an appetizer with paper thin sliced prosciutto or other cured meats, chilled soups, agua fresca, ice creams, smoothies and cocktails.( Champagne, Cognac, Cointreu, Grand Marnier, Kirsch, Midori, Port, Rum, Sake, Sambuca, Tequilla, sweet white wines)
To store, keep melons at room temperature for two to three days. Refrigerate ripe or cut melons up to three days. Remove from the walk-in about one-half hour before serving for best flavor.

History

Aromatic melon varieties are prized for their flavor and perfume and are rich in vitamin A and C and provide dietary fiber. Melons are related to cucumbers, pumpkins and squash, growing as they do on long, trailing vines. Canary melons are grown primarily throughout the highly productive and diverse agricultural region of San Joaquin valley.
