Korean Melon


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. 


Suggested Uses:

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.
