The Galia Melon is a cross between a Cantaloupe and a Honeydew Melon, combining the best of both melons into one. The outside looks like a Cantaloupe while the inside looks like a Honeydew Melon.
The flavor is a unique fusion of both with the mild taste of a Honeydew Melon and the sweeter flavor of the Cantaloupe.
With Melissa’s Organic Galia Melons, they are even better because “Melissa's Certified Organic Produce is free of artificial or synthetic fertilizers and full of unforgettable, great tasting flavor. Our farmers use traditional earth-friendly farming methods inspected by a nationally recognized agency to verify organic authenticity. Melissa's Organic Produce, a choice made closer to nature.”
Galia Melons are delicious when eaten by itself or served with other fruits. For added flavor, try it with a sprinkle of ginger, salt or a squeeze of lemon or lime.
Color, fragrance and firm stem end, indicate ripeness. Great fragrance is the hallmark of a good melon. Galia Melons are not picked unless they're mature and have high sugar content. Keep cut fruit in refrigerator for up to three days.
