Santa Claus Melon

Santa Claus Melon

Santa Claus melons (a.k.a Christmas Melons) are a football shaped melon with pale green to white flesh.  Similar to a rockmelon in texture, with a sweet flavour. The skin can come in varying shades of green and yellow, with a signature wrinkled skin.  In general the brighter the yellow of the melon on the outside, the riper and sweeter on the inside. The sweet flavour of the Santa Claus melon pairs with cured meats, brie cheese, mint, basil, citrus zest.
