Tuscan Style Cantaloupes Dig into the full, rich flavor, the brilliant orange color and the sweetness you won't find anywhere else. Filled with Vitamin C and antioxidants, these melons are simply outstanding. Look for the distinctive grooves year-round to help you find the perfect cantaloupe.
The Extra Sweet Tuscan Style Cantaloupe is distinguished by its deep-grooved outer appearance and full-flavored, super-sweet, juicy fruit inside. The exterior grooves change color from dark green to golden-cream as the fruit ripens, so both produce managers and consumers know when the fruit is optimal for their specific taste.
The Tuscan Cantaloupe is a variety with Italian origins - thus, its name - so it shares many of the qualities of the European cantaloupes. Among those qualities are the sweet aroma, rich flavor and distinct exterior grooves - these grooves are actually an indicator of flavor and ripeness.
This is a very sweet melon that makes an excellent breakfast or brunch addition, is excellent with ham or prosciutto and is surprisingly satisfying in a summertime salad.
