Korean melon, also known as the Chameh or Golden melon. This fruit has a yellow rind with a translucent white flesh and small seeds. The flesh is sweet and aromatic with flavors reminiscent of pear, banana and honeydew melon. It is rich in vitamins A and C and is a natural source to hydrate the body. The rind and seeds are edible although this is often served peeled like most melons.
Ripening and Storage:
When ripe, Korean melons will have a slight give when gently pressed. This fruit bruises easily. This can be kept at room temperature for a day or two at most. When ripe, keep refrigerated if not eating immediately. Cut up fruit can be stored in a sealed container or bag in the refrigerator for up to two days.
This is best served chilled and peeled with the rind off, although the rind is edible. Eat alone or add to salads, yogurt or smoothies.
