Watermelon and Cantaloupe

Summer here in Mississippi is too humid, steamy hot, muggy, scorching and blistering. I can use these words over and over again to justify that the warm weather here is like the HOLY WEEK weather in the Philippines. That is why on this day, we are in the mood of buying watermelon fresh from the farm. We found this farm in Grand Bay, Alabama which is famous with water melon farm land. We travel about 30 minutes just to find this place.
the farm
this cost $5 to $10 each
I really do not know which is sweeter but, we just bought 2 varieties.
The location of this area is along the busy street so, people are stopping to buy for family consumption and buy loads to resale them.
We were able to buy worth $9 for two big water melons and three cantaloupe. That is a good deal for me.
When we sliced the water melon, we were amazed to see a Yellow variety which they call Yellow Crimson Watermelon. That was my first time to see a yellow flesh and I was so amazed.
This cantaloupe is 3 for $5 and my sister in law bought 3 and a basket of peaches which was $12.
What is summer without these thirst-quenching fruits right?
According to Wikipedia, there are more than 1200 varieties of watermelon with flesh that are red, white, yellow and orange. I have no idea that there are yellow flesh, i thought all watermelons are red. Now, white and orange? to find them. For watermelon health benefit, click this link.{HERE}.
