Orange Creamsicle Melons are Back!
Orange creamsicle melons are a cross between a honeydew and a cantaloupe. They have a smooth exterior like a honeydew, with an orange interior like a cantaloupe. They are extremely sweet, flavorful and aromatic. These are a perennial customer favorite.
All of our Orange Creamsicle melons are ripe. You should expect to see a light creamy rind and a sugary aroma. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator for no longer than three days.
