Produce Box 7-30 To 8-6

Wow, Little Red Barn Produce has had a website for a year now. I guess it isn’t actually until August 2nd. Our First post was on Kohlrabi. Which drops off the list this week as does kale. They are replaced by Galia Melon and Green beans.

If you aren’t familiar with Galia Melon it is a cross between a honeydew and a cantaloupe. They have lovely green golden skin on the outside when ripe. They may or may not be netted, that means the outside may have smooth skin or the pattern a cantaloupe has. The inside is green and the taste is amazing. I don’t really like cantaloupe, the musky flavor is not something I enjoy. This melon has none of that. The flavor is  tropical and they smell wonderful. I hope you enjoy them. They are early this year. They are always the first to ripen but I have never had them in July!

The above Melon isn’t quite ripe the skin will turn more golden when it is.
