Melons and the California Desert Wind

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Growing melons in the California desert allows us to have delicious Cantaloupes and Honeydews early in the season, however, the downside is they may be exposed to heavy winds. Have you seen the clusters of wind mills generating clean electricity driving past by the San Jacinto Mountains? All that wind can affect the Honeydews in particular and you may see some wind scars in the skin. The flavor and consistency of the fruit remains intact and is just an indication that the melons grew during some very windy days, causing the young melons to rub against the leaves leaving s few scars in the skin of the fruit.
