Utah's Summer Delicacies: The Crenshaw Melon

Utah is terrific for fruit growing.
One of the best regional specialties is melons,
especially in the Green River area.
Melons like sandy soil and lots of water,
and the town of Green River has both of these in abundance.
The melons are put in trucks and sold
all along the Wasatch front,
but on our recent road trip,
we stopped at Green River itself,
where my Dad cleverly picked out a really terrific
crenshaw melon.
I love crenshaws and they are not easy to find,
especially good ones,
so today's breakfast was a feast!
