Day 158 - Santa Claus Melon

Peg purchased this melon on the weekend. She was intrigued by the name, Santa Claus Melon. Apparently it has a longer shelf life than most melons and can be eaten in a variety of ways. Anybody out there know why they call it a Santa Claus Melon? Inquiring minds want to know?

No clue why it's called a Santa Claus melon. I love the angle and DOF on the shot, though! Nicely done!

Was just going to write - I like the angle of this shot. I did look to see why it's called a Santa Claus melon and found -
This melon was named in recognition of its long keeping qualities...until Christmas.
Product from South America is available during the winter months. For this reason they're also known as Christmas melon.
