Product Italian Fruit, Melon


Melons need specific environmental conditions, such as high temperatures, little humidity, and deep, well-drained soils.

Melon plants grow well in warm climates, with seeds germinating at temperatures higher than 24 degrees, and thrive at 30 degrees. They’re afraid of frost – in fact, temperatures dropping below 14 degrees can lead melons to enter their vegetative stasis and stop growing. The most suitable soil for melons is medium to deep, free of waterlogging but moist, rich in organic matter and nutrients, with as little acid as possible and well exposed to the sun. Sowing takes place in late spring (April-May), when the temperature has reached 14-15 °C.

Harvesting of the melons starts approximately 90-110 days after sowing and continues in stages for 15-30 days. Melons must be harvested at a specific stage of development, since a delay could compromise shelf life, while early harvesting could affect quality (at least 10% sugar content). Some recognizable signs of ripening are the detachment of the peduncle from the fruit (in some netted varieties), cracks appearing in a circular pattern around the peduncle, the disappearance of hair from the peduncle, the netted pattern takes on a lighter colour.

Melon possibly originated in Africa (though some believe it to have originated in Asia, ancient Persia, India, or the deserts of Iran). In the 5th century B.C., the Egyptians began exporting it throughout the Mediterranean basin. Melon was brought to Italy in the early Roman imperial age, as reported by Pliny (1st century A.D.) in his book Naturalis Historia, where he compared this fruit to the quince-shaped cucumber, the melopepaes.

Current knowledge of melon’s diffusion in the Mediterranean basin, however, has been challenged by recent archaeological discoveries made in Sardinia, where melon seeds dating back to a period earlier than the Bronze Age (between 1310-1120 B.C., in the midst of the Nuragic period) were found at the archaeological site of Sa Osa in Cabras, in the province of Oristano.

You can store organic dried melon in cool, dry places away from heat and moisture. Here are 4 useful tips:

  • The best way to store organic dried melon is in a refrigerated environment. Nuturally organic dried melon can also be stored at room temperature during the winter season due to low temperatures. During summer, however, it is advisable to store the product in the refrigerator or in the coolest possible environment, as increased temperatures could encourage decay.
  • The ideal container for the storage of organic dried melon is glass. Indeed, because of its composition it is impervious to chemical agents and gases, and, as it has excellent insulation properties, it holds the initial temperature for longer than other materials. It is even better if the glass is coloured: using coloured glass blocks the entry of certain wavelengths of light (including ultraviolet), and thus certain nutritional and organoleptic characteristics remain unaltered.
  • The type of closure of the container is also important as an airtight cap ensures that the food is protected from excessive contact with oxygen that can lead to lipid oxidation and encourage the growth of aerobic bacteria.
  • The best kind of storage environment is one which is well ventilated because ventilating the premises keeps internal humidity under control, which otherwise could escape from windows, thereby guaranteeing the right balance to lessen the onset of mould.
