The Health Benefits of Canary Melon

Canary melon is a large and brightly coloured melon that is often slightly larger than cantaloupes or honeydew melons. The fruit is native to Persia. This variety is grown in the south-western United States, specifically Arizona and the southern portion of California. 

 

With a strong and pleasing aroma, the canary is not as sweet as many varieties of melons, but has a tendency to enhance the taste of other fruits when mixed into fruit salads.

 

The flesh looks like that of a pear but is softer and tastes a little like a cantaloupe.

 

When ripe, the rind has a slightly waxy feel. The name comes from its bright yellow colour, which resembles that of the canary. Use Canary melon in fresh preparations such as cold soups and salads.

 

The mellow sweetness and slight tart flavours are enhanced with herbs such as basil, mint, cilantro as well as hot chiles and nuts.
