Pikes Pick: Melon madness

Tuscon-style melons are juicy, sweet treat for Fourth of July.

Our founding fathers would vote for melons for Fourth of July dining. While we wait for the prized fruit from Rocky Ford to hit shelves, go for a Tuscan-style cantaloupe with the distinctive green stripes. While dark green lines will deliver juicy, sweet-flavor, the taste gets better as they turn to yellow. Get napkins ready. — Teresa Farney, The Gazette
