Winter Watermelon – It’s Yellow-Orange
Are you longing for the tastes of summer during the cold Israeli winter? The new yellow-orange watermelon will bring your taste buds back to the sweet fruits of summer. The new fruit is a joint venture between farmer Itay Gal from Moshav Ein Yahav in the Arava Desert and the Hishtil Nurseries.
The new fruit is oval shaped with a bottle green rind and dark green stripes. According to the P.R. materials this new watermelon will be firm, crisp and more sweet than the usual summer red watermelon.
Grown hanging in hothouses the melons are wrapped in the early stages of growth in a mesh bag to protect them from damage. The mesh bag remains on the fruit all the way to market shelf...and on to your refrigerator.
