The story of the famous Montreal melon is a wonderful example.
So succulent and sweet, the Montreal melon was known for its watermelon-like proportions, often weighing nine or ten pounds.
In recent years, thanks to the efforts of local farmers and others interested in the melon, there has been much success in producing what is now the closest thing to the original Montreal melon.
