Super Whole Melon Atlas Award (3)

June 5, 2023
The Super Whole Melon Atlas Award (3) is an annual award that recognizes the best melons in the world. This year, three melons have been chosen for this prestigious award: honey globe melon, horned melon, and jade dew melon. Each of these unique varieties has its own distinct flavor and texture that make them stand out from other types of melons.
