Growing SanLucar Galia Melons
- The Galia Melon loves to be pampered by the sun. The fact that it feels comfortable in Spain was obvious! To ensure that it gets everything it needs, we have the taste-intensive melon variety grown only by experienced growers in harmony with nature. So we get to feel the summer on our tongue from April to September, no matter what the weather is like.
- The time of harvest plays an important role for the Galia Melon, because it’s a post-ripening fruits. For this, we measure from SanLucar their Brix value, i.e. the sugar content. If it’s 13 degrees, it can be picked. Then the melon can post-ripen and achieve its best flavour.
