At the beginning of the summer, the countryside between Trapani and Paceco, along the western coast of Sicily, is tinged with yellow. It is the color of special melons, the melons of Paceco, or winter melons, because they can be found well beyond the autumn season.
Medium in size, these melons are pretty hardy, with an intense yellow colour, and rich in water, potassium and vitamins A and C , containing yellow seeds.
These melons also contain calcium, phosphorus and iron. This was a favorite food of peasants during the hot summers. While on holiday in Sicily, a slice of yellow melon from Paceco can be very refreshing.
