About Crenshaw Melons

Crenshaw melons are oblong with a tapered stem end, and sometimes have a blunted opposite end.  Some Crenshaw melons have been known to grow as large as watermelons.  They have a greenish skin that ripens to a bright yellow.  It is always best to purchase a vine ripened Crenshaw melon, but they will also ripen on the countertop.  When the skin, particularly on the ends, yields to gentle pressure, the Crenshaw melon is ripe.  Ripe Crenshaw melons emit a musky fragrance.  The sweet inner flesh is usually a pinkish orange, but may also be yellow or even ivory.  We could not find significant nutritional information other than that they seem to have more vitamin C and less vitamin A than a cantaloupe.

Some background information:

Over the years, people have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product as the main meal, and then think about everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat in this section of our web site. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection and experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy.
