Madhu Ras, Rajasthan Honey Melon
Bateekh Samara Melon
Mother Mary's Pie Melon
A favorite in our vegan restaurant. Here's a really different little melon! Tart little fruit is about softball sized or slightly smaller, weighing to about 6 ounces. Smooth, occasionally netted bright yellow-orange skin contains the white flesh. The fruit is fragrant, tangy and moderately sweet. Original seed was preserved by W.R. Lorence, whose Minnesota grandmother a century ago made pies from a combination of this melon and apples. Our cooks turn these into incredible pies, crisps and cakes. Enjoy wonderful melon flavor in your summer baking and preserves!
