Another New Melon – Sharlin

When we went back to the fruit stand this week, I wanted to get another Orange Flesh Cantaline Melon since it was so good, but they didn’t have any.  But they did have another new kind of melon – a Sharlin!

Sharlin Melon

This one is really pretty!  It looks a lot more like a cantaloupe than the Cantaline melon, even though both of them are hybrids of cantaloupe and honeydew.  But when I cut this one open, I got a big surprise – actually two big surprises!  First off, the seeds aren’t attached!  They just poured out – and made a mess, lol.  And second, this melon is a pale, creamy white color.  It has a very mild taste, and it might be just a tiny bit sweeter than a cantaloupe.  I liked this one, too, and I wonder what kind of new melon the fruit stand will have when I go back next week?

The seeds of the Sharlin melon aren’t attached, and the flesh is a pale, creamy, almost white color.

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.

    California’s Central Valley has an exquisite choice of fresh fruits and veggies–especially in the summertime! Melons are sweet, tomatoes, cherries, strawberries, asparagus, blueberries, raspberries…nectarines! Love it!
