Cantaloupes from Food Science & Technology Students

August 21st, 2009

Today our gardener, Arlene Kennedy, was approached by students from the Food Science & Technology department who were looking to find homes for some cantaloupes. They are developing a robot that can field test cantaloupes to determine whether or not they are ripe. We don’t if these passed the test, where they were grown, or how, but we have reserved five for any local reader that wants to drop by the UC Davis Grounds Office to pick one up. We are located northeast of Mrak Hall and south of the Art Annex.

Reserve your cantaloupe now by emailing us at: goodlifegarden@ucdavis.edu. This offer ends Friday, August 21, 2009 at 4 PM.

IMPORTANT for all melon eaters! You should wash melons thoroughly with warm soapy water before preparing them because microbes that linger on the surface may cause food poisoning upon introduction to the fruits’ flesh. Look here for more information on melons.
