Yellow Melon from Brazil is Delicious and More Widely Available

Trying to wean yourself from sweets to fruit that is good for you goes better when you allow yourself a special fruit.  This week I discovered a Yellow Melon from Brazil.  The packaging was enticing.  It was in a net closed on either end  with a  material handle affixed for easy transport.

These almost white meat melons have been available in the US since about 2008.  The company that grows and distributes them has been cleared for fruit flies.

With an oval shape but with a size approximating that of a cantaloupe, these will produce 2 ample dishes of melon balls.  The taste is mild and sweet. The texture is smoother than that of a honeydew.  Treat yourself.

Here is a website that will allow you to keep up with produce world-wide:

  1. Looks yummy.

    I love melon, but mostly cantaloupe. It is rare for me to find a honeydew that tastes good and has nice texture. I’ll keep my eyes peeled for one of these and give it a try!


  2. I remember eating a melon that reminded me of a honeydew when I was working in Rio several years ago. Probably the same kind, but I don’t remember what it was called. Haven’t seen them here in my little store, yet.

    Brazil also has excellent bananas. There’s quite a few varieties. Most are smaller, sweeter & much more flavorful than the “water” bananas they export to the United States.
