* What the heck is a Crenshaw Melon? My first inclination was to believe that this Melon was from Crenshaw, Los Angeles. However, the Crenshaw melon is the love child of casaba melons and Persian melons. It has a salmon hue inside and is yellowish-green on the outside. The flavor is among the sweetest of the melons.

Crenshaw Melon Recipe Ideas: Enjoy the Crenshaw melon raw – use a melon baller to scoop out small rounds and combine it with small rounds of watermelon (you can also place these fruity rounds in a summer drink), grill it, or wrap the Crenshaw Melon in prosciutto.
