Typical Melon from Emilia

News about melons grown in the Ferrarese countryside first came from Cristoforo da Messisbugo, master chef to the Este family, who recounted that this fruit was widely grown both in the city and the surrounding area.
Typical Melon from Emilia

Bondeno and the areas of Gavello and Zerbinate are famed for both their high output and quality.
The more common summer varieties are noted for their orange-coloured flesh that is high in vitamin A as well as providing a good supply of vitamin C.
The main characteristics are without doubt their taste and sweetness. They are best served cold but never frozen. Melons are delicious when served along with slices of ham; with a pinch of salt as a dessert or as part of a fruit salad.
IGP certification is currently awaiting approval.
