Persian Melon

Persian Melon
(Persian Melon) The Persian melon has a greenish "netted" rind similar to a cantaloupe's, but may lose its greenish color as it ripens, as in this photo.  It is best to purchase vine ripened Persian melons, but they ripen well on the countertop.  When the rind yields to gentle pressure or develops slight depressions, the melon is ripe.  Persian melons also have a cantaloupe-like aroma when ripe, and are similar in flavor to a cantaloupe.  We could not find specific nutritional information for Persian melons.

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!
