Arancino Melon

1 Review | Write a Review
Southern Europe is full of all kinds of special heirloom melons. France is very famous for small melons that have been relished for centuries. The most famous being the Charentais types that are grown in the French Provence. Well, what is less known is that the Italians have their special heirlooms as well. The variety known as Arancino in Italy is a roughly ribbed antique variety that is grown by gardeners in all the warmer provinces. It is a small spherical melon about a pound in weight. The flesh is exquisite and the melons are heavily perfumed. This is a unique addition to the heirloom Italian collection and one that is sure to be a hit with those who love Italian varieties with history. We were introduced to this melon by a farmer in Central Italy who collects old heritage varieties that are in danger of extinction. In Italian, Arancino means "little orange" a fitting description for this special melon.

What are the pros? The smell!! :)

What are the cons? Took too long to ripen


Took too long to ripen. Wasn't as sweet as I hoped. The smell of these when ripe is something special. My whole house smelled of melon. Too bad I grew these for taste, not to make my house smell good.
