Yellow Meated Watermelon

What is this strange fruit? It may be orange but it's called is yellow meated watermelon. It looks like cantaloupe and tastes like sweet summer watermelon. My sister found it at a farmers market in Statesboro, GA and when she said it wouldn't be red on the inside I didn't believe her. From a girl who has been experimenting with red carrots and purple potatoes I guess I can't be too surprised. The watermelon somehow skipped any bad quality possible. It is sweeter than I expected, has hardly any seeds and makes a perfect snack.

I keep seeing new ways to try watermelon. From summer cocktails to chilled summer soups and salsa. I am dying to try something different. Have you attempted a new recipe this summer? Recommendations are welcome!


  1. I just tried this tasty, refreshing treat! Although its appearance is certainly not the red watermelon I grew up eating, I can see the fruit as something I can enjoy just as easily. Thanks for sharing!!

  2. I just tried the Tomato and Watermelon Salad at Peninsula Grill, and it was amazing! I can only imagine what it would have been like with this unexpected color! I can't wait to try this when making the chilled beet and watermelon soup from Charleston Grill!

  3. I tried this watermelon after reading your blog and was equally surprised by the color and taste! Delicious and refreshing!
