Summer may be gone, but melons—the royalty of summer fruit—are here to stay. Once only available during the summer months, advances in growing techniques and distribution methods have made melons—such as the Del Monte® cantaloupe, honeydew, and the Del Monte MAG®melon—available all year-round. The melon’s sweet taste and aroma and its versatility are behind its demand. These delicate melons can be eaten alone, added to fruit salad or salsa, paired with cheese or charcuterie or put on top of grains or yogurt. They can even be transformed into fruit tarts, smoothies, popsicles or sorbets. However you slice them, melons can be served almost any time, any way. But while consumers now expect their beloved melons year-round, sourcing melons after summer has long presented a challenge. Fortunately, Del Monte not only knows their melons, but have even developed specific varieties designed to provide maximum flavor, fewer seeds and therefore more melon for the money. Del Monte® melons are a fresh, easy way to add deliciousness to any part of your menu. Serve Del Monte® melons alongside feta cheese, make them into a frosty smoothie or wrap them with prosciutto. Whatever the preparation, we start with the freshest, best melons—then watch your customers eat them up all year long.
