About Juan Canary Melons

Canary melons are recognizable by their slightly oblong shape and their bright yellow rinds, which are waxy when the melon is ripe. Farmer Frank plants a drought tolerant Tohono O’odham variety, which is very sweet. Slightly tangier than a honeydew, the flesh of a canary melon is often pale green to white. It is often called a “Juan Canary.”

Canary melons go well with citrus, ginger, and honey flavors and can be used in cold soup, fruit salads, drinks, or eaten by the forkful as a sweet snack!
