About This Project

The melon of the Quercy is sweet, juicy and delicious for which the clay limestone of the Quercy offers fertile ground. The melon of the Quercy has a light green skin with clear, dark green stripes, and bright orange flesh. Only the producers who adhere to an extensive set of specifications may carry the label. Quality guaranteed. We found our favorite melons on the Saturday market of Brive-la-Gaillarde. The stand is built entirely from crates full of melons, and there is always a line of at least 30 people. Each melon is chosen in function of its optimal moment for tasting. We also know where those same melons can be found in Souillac. We make sure to only buy ripe ones, as it impossible to keep your hands off of them for long.
