The Instacart guide to Golden Kiss melons

About the Golden Kiss melon

Most people know the standard varieties of melons like watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew. They are widely available year-round, almost anywhere in the world. Melons originated in Egypt and India and are related to pumpkins, cucumbers, and squash. In ancient Egypt, the watermelon was offered to weary travelers as a thirst-quenching welcome due to its high water content.

Today, the world has far more specialty melons available, including the Golden Kiss melon. The Golden Kiss melon was developed by crossing the Galia and Charentais melons. From April into October, Golden Kiss melons grow in warm climates like California and Arizona, with their peak occurring in July. 

On the outside, the Golden Kiss resembles the cantaloupe with its gold netted skin and green stripes. Inside, the bright orange flesh has a dense yet tender texture and a small seed cavity. Its mild melon flavor has hints of pear and a clean, refreshing sweetness to go along with solid melon aromatics.

Technically, the rind of a Golden Kiss melon won't harm you, but it has a tough texture that won't appeal to most people. Some chefs pickle the rind, which softens the texture and adds a briny flavor. These pickles are used in a complementary fashion with other foods, not as a significant component.
