Melon

Know your product

Melons originally come from Africa and India. They are a sweet, very juicy and tasty fruit when ripe. Rich in vitamin C, containing potassium, and fat-free, melons can be used as a starter or as a dessert. Alexandre Dumas, the creator of the famous The Three Musketeers, liked this fruit so much that he swapped all his published work for an annuity of 12 melons until his death.

Our melons weigh from 350 to over 1,750 g.

How to buy

Choose firm melons, with a yellow golden peel. Ripe fruit react easily to soft pressure, and offer a musky flavor.

how to keep

Keep the ripest and open melons in a container, and in the fridge for up to 3 days. You can help the greenest melons reach optimal ripeness by leaving them at room temperature.

Tips

You can use an ice cream spoon to make lovely balls of melon.
