Persian Melon

Persian melon has a greenish “netted” rind similar to a cantaloupe’s, but may lose its greenish color as it ripens, as in this photo.

It is best to purchase vine ripened Persian melons, but they ripen well on the countertop.  When the rind yields to gentle pressure or develops slight depressions, the melon is ripe.  Persian melons also have a cantaloupe-like aroma when ripe, and are similar in flavor to a cantaloupe.  We could not find specific nutritional information for Persian melons.

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.
