Our watermelons come in all sizes and colors- and are seriously delicious! Here are some of our varieties: Orchids (orange flesh), Yellow Dolls (bright yellow), Little Baby's (red flesh and quite small), and Mickey Lee's (pink). One of our favorite varieties will never appear in your CSA box because it is too big, but if you visit Full Belly at the farmers market in the summer, you are likely to see the Crimson Sweet, a red-fleshed heirloom watermelon with true old-fashioned watermelon flavor.
Melons should be stored on the counter top until you are ready to eat them -- if they are refrigerated for too long the flesh gets less crisp. Note that watermelons do not ripen off the vine. Once opened, store the melon in the refrigerator for up to three days.
