The Strong and Tasty Gaya Melon

I was checking out the Farmers Market the other day (this time the La Cienega Farmers' Market) when Edible Skinny happened across the new discovery of a Gaya Melon!


Gaya Melons are a cross between a Honeydew and Japanese Melon.  The melon is on the smaller side with a rind that’s dark green and white (and quite strong, twice it bounced out of my bike basket onto the asphalt and didn’t crack at all).  The flesh is a pale green coloring. 


Gaya’s sweet aroma intensifies as it ripens.  The delicious delicious flavor is subtle mix of banana and pear  


So if you happen across the strong and tasty Gaya Melon in your Farmers Market travels give it a gander!  You won't be disappointed!!!
