Melon - Galia

Melon - Galia

Description

The Galia has ultra sweet and exceptionally juicy, light green smooth textured flesh that tastes like a cross between a Cantaloupe and a Honeydew. Unlike most melons, Galias are at their very best when chilled and is an excellent dessert melon.

Applications/Techniques

Use in salads, fruit platters, granita, as an appetizer with paper thin sliced prosciutto or other cured meats, chilled soups, agua fresca, ice creams, smoothies and cocktails.( Champagne, Cognac, Cointreu, Grand Marnier, Kirsch, Midori, Port, Rum, Sake, Sambuca, Tequilla, sweet white wines)

History

Anywhere melons are sold, they are looked at, felt, shaken, tapped, weighed and sniffed, the customer always in search of the perfect melon. Melons should be heavy in weight, an indication of freshness. Avoid melons with soft skin or blemishes on the skin. To store, keep melons at room temperature for two to three days. Refrigerate ripe or cut melons up to three days. Keep refrigerated until ready to use.
