For all of you who have been asking about our heirloom and specialty melons, they are finally beginning to arrive. The first in line are the Ambrosia, Tuscany and Retato Degli musk melons. Orange fleshed and heavily perfumed with a small seed cavity and thin rind Ambrosia is one of our favorites. Tuscany and Retato Degli are new this season and appear to be a delicious melon with lots of variations in size and shape, true heirlooms. They are also orange fleshed and heavily perfumed with a slightly firmer texture than Ambrosia. Too bad you can’t smell them on the computer. Come to Fairfax on Wednesday night or Santa Rosa on Sunday morning and get some aroma therapy.
