Martori Farms is rolling out its Kandy Lemondrop Melon.
The melon is 100 percent GMO free and has no fat or cholesterol. It contains more than the recommended daily allowance of vitamin A and more than 50 percent of the RDA of vitamin C.
With its sweet and tart flavor, the Kandy Lemondrop Melon is ideal as a gourmet stand-alone snack and can be incorporated in the top trending dishes of 2013, Martori says.
Martori adds that, with 25,000 acres in Arizona, its operation is able to ship to stores an average of one day earlier than their competitors in California, providing the freshest melons.
Scottsdale-based Martori Farms is a vertically integrated operation shipping fresh fruits and vegetables year round throughout North America.
