Simple Christmas Decor - Fruit Ornaments for Tree
Véraison is a viticulture (grape-growing) term meaning “the onset of ripening”. It is originally French, but has been adopted into English use. The official definition of veraison is “change of color of the grape berries.” Veraison represents the transition from berry growth to berry ripening, and many changes in berry development occur at veraison.
HH: Beautiful fruit of the vine.
- Often I will bring a sugar baby watermelon, a cantaloupe, or a honeydew to work for lunch and then usually share it with my lunch buddies. They have started to call me “Thumper” because I have a knack for picking a great, sweet melon. I have a running streak of good melon after good melon this summer.
I don’t know where I picked it up exactly, but we always had melon during the summers and we would jump for joy when we saw the watermelon truck coming down the lane.
We also loved a cantaloupe halved, scooped clean and filled with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or rainbow sherbert for a cool dinner dish.
It took longer to perfect the selection of honeydew, but I have it down. I rarely choose a bad melon and if I do, I am so disappointed, I will chuck it. It doesn’t happen often - I just let the melon talk to me. :)
