Hermiston Walchli Organic Cantaloupes - Not yet, things ripening a little slow with the cool July. Target date: July 17th! The crop looks promising. The pressing question: Can our community eat 50,000 lbs in 8 1/2 weeks??? Dig out or pick up your “Buy Ten, Get One Free Melon Card”. Last year’s punches count! These are from Walchli’s special vine-ripened patch which explains why they are so exceptional.
