Crenshaw Melon

Crenshaw Melon
(Crenshaw Melon) Crenshaw melons are oblong with a tapered stem end, and sometimes have a blunted opposite end.  Some Crenshaw melons have been known to grow as large as watermelons.  They have a greenish skin that ripens to a bright yellow.  It is always best to purchase a vine ripened Crenshaw melon, but they will also ripen on the countertop.  When the skin, particularly on the ends, yields to gentle pressure, the Crenshaw melon is ripe.  Ripe Crenshaw melons emit a musky fragrance.  The sweet inner flesh is usually a pinkish orange, but may also be yellow or even ivory.  We could not find significant nutritional information other than that they seem to have more vitamin C and less vitamin A than a cantaloupe.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
