The countdown to Rocky Ford Cantaloupe season is on!
Rocky Ford Growers Association member farms are preparing for another sweet & juicy cantaloupe season
The family farmers of the Rocky Ford Growers Association have been busy over the last couple of weeks planting their world-famous melons. Those amazingly sweet and juicy Rocky Ford Cantaloupes will start rolling into grocery stores across Colorado in mid-July. The ripest cantaloupes are picked daily through the growing season and will go from the field to the grocery store in about 12 hours.
