Preserving Food Safely - 01600646


This is a variety of watermelon that is not as
palatable as the commonly used varieties of the fruit
because it has a hard white flesh. However, the rind may be
candied or pickled. It is noteworthy that the candied
"citron" sold in many American stores is often made from the
citron melon rather than from the peel of the citrus fruit
citron, which is much more expensive and has a more
distinctive flavor.
