Which is better, white flesh or yellow flesh stone fruit?

It all depends on what you prefer. White flesh stone fruits typically have a pale flesh and lower acid (also called sub-acid) and known for their sweetness...sometimes almost syrupy sweet...while yellow-fleshed stone fruits have a sharper acidity that balances the flavor to round things out.

Whatever your preference, add peaches to your summer menu!
Throughout the summer many varieties of melon are available—and they are so refreshing on a hot summer day! 🍈 Here is a quick tip for storage:

Melons are susceptible to chill damage, but cantaloupe can be stored at colder temperatures than honeydew or watermelon. This works out well, since cantaloupe also produce ethylene, and honeydew and watermelon are both ethylene sensitive, so keep them apart in storage.

Summer is a fantastic time to add melons to your menu. The sweetness of melons lend themselves to savory additions such as the classic combination of prosciutto.
