California Cantaloupe 2015 Snapshot
2015 was a year of delicious anticipation, triumphant crop yields, and fresh, new California cantaloupe inspiration. Whether you only just joined the California cantaloupe journey or you’ve been with us from the start, we hope you enjoy reflecting on these five highlights from the year just as much as we did.
Without further ado, we present to you five noteworthy things that happened with California cantaloupes in 2015…
We launched our very first California Cantaloupe Countdown!
As California cantaloupe farmers in the southern desert region of the state began gearing up for the season, they agreed to document their fields from start to finish in order for us to share with you their progress!
In early February, we kicked off a countdown to California cantaloupe season, which – as previously mentioned – began a few days earlier than predicted. After much anticipation, at the conclusion of the countdown, we put together a short video documenting the lifecycle of a California cantaloupe from seed to fruit!
We love California cantaloupe in all its glorious shapes and forms, but these fun preparation methods took it to a whole new level!
