The popular Origami cantaloupe variety is now shipping out of Brawley, California
Higher Brix, deep orange color, small seed cavity, and a thin rind are key attributes of this variety
Supplies are only available during the domestic season
Domestic growers will transition harvesting north to California’s San Joaquin Valley in early July
New crop melons are commanding slightly higher prices than offshore melons; however, prices are settling
