Indiana Melon

What is it about Indiana Melons that make them so delicious?
There is a vast difference between a regular cantelope and an
Indiana one! They hardly taste like the same fruit!
How do those Hoosiers do it?
I was born there and I don't even know the answer!

  1. I'm not sure I've ever had an Indiana Melon?! How can you tell the difference by looking at them? Are they stamped "Indiana"?

  2. I've never heard of an Indiana melon. If they're that good I might just learn to love cantelope.

    Your new header is beautiful!

  3. Hi Betsy, I found your blog the other day and bookmarked it because of your triplets. What an outstanding Christian mother you are! Even though my children are grown, I still enjoy reading about the experiences you younger mothers have with the challenges that are before you.

    Not only that, we are from Beavercreek so I like to connect with folks from back home. We now live in Lancaster County, PA. Our sons did attend Cedarville for a semester when we lived in the area.

    I love the look of your blog! How do you get the frames around your pictures? It all looks so neat!

    Blessings to you,
    Cheryl

  5. Pat ~ I added a picture of what they look like. Just like any cantelope but they have the deep ridges. Our grocery labels them "Indiana Melons" and you see them at farmer's markets and roadside stands marked that way.

  6. Cherdecor ~ I'm so glad you found me! Cedarville does give you connections all over the world! I've heard Lancaster is a gorgeous place to live! I'll come over and visit you today...

  12. I'm a Hoosier too, but sadly, I don't like even Indiana canteloupe. Of course my intro to them was one time when I was asleep and my step-dad said "Wake up, try this!" and shoved a bite in to my sleepy mouth. I ran and spit it out and haven't liked them since! But everyone thinks I'm crazy, so they must be good. They certainly LOOK beautiful!

  17. Hi Michelle ~ yes, the melon is great! Glad you thought the moon cookies looked nice...I definitely don't decorate them like that just for us to gobble them up here at home! LOL!

  18. Since I was born in Indiana and lived there until I was almost 15 I can say for sure that the food in Indiana is better. Call it the pride of home food, but to me it just tastes so much better!

  19. Nanatrish ~ I agree...my side of the family that is from there all love to eat and cook! ...I guess I got those genes for sure since I like to do both! :)

  20. Betsy - these look SOOOOOO good! What a glorious colour. I have never heard of them, let alone tasted them, but something tells me that sometime soon I will have an opportunity to do so. Hope you are well!

  22. im in ohio and my wife and i wait patiently each summer for our Indiana melons. they are the best you can eat in my opinion ! Must be the soil there in Indiana that produces this tasty mouth watering jewel ! Nothing like those melons here in Ohio to my knowledge !

    1. Do you have a Sams Club near you? I bought a "Honey Kiss" melon from there that is just as good and maybe even better than an Indiana melon! There were several....Lemon Kiss, and one other, so make sure you get the Honey Kiss. It was amazing!

      and sure coffee this late...hahaha..there's no caffeine in cyber coffee! ;)
