Canary Melon

Canary melons are sweet with a slightly tangy flavor. They are also called winter melons.

Quality Check

When picking canary melons look for a slightly rough and bumpy texture. It should have an ivory color and should be waxy to the touch. You can store this melon by placing it in a cool, dark, dry place. It can stay good for up to five months in the right conditions.


These melons make a great gazpacho or fresh salad. You can also turn them into a soup. A popular Chinese recipe involves pork meatballs and canary melon in a soup to make a hearty fresh broth.
