Horned Melon | Kiwano Melon

The Horned Melon, also called a kiwano, jelly melon, melano, African horned cucumber and even the blowfish fruit, tastes like a cross between a banana, cucumber and lemon. The Horned Melon has horn-like spikes on a bright orange skin. The brighter the orange, the sweeter the fruit.

This strange looking fruit is full of immunity boosting vitamin C and fiber. It can be eaten raw or cut up and added to fruit salad, ice cream or cheesecake. The shells can be used as serving bowls for soups, yogurt and sorbets.

You can find this unique fruit year round at gourmet markets and many supermarkets in the produce section. For more information and recipe ideas, visit

Red Wine | Malbec

Published on January 23, 2012, in Wine, Wine Tasting.

Among the “big six”, the Malbec grape originates from the Bordeaux region of France, but has become Argentina’s signature grape. Say Malbec to a wine lover and they will reply Argentina.  Malbec is making a new name for itself with red wine lovers everywhere.

Malbec is typically a medium to full-bodied red wine. Ripe fruit flavors of plums and blackberry give it a jammy characteristic with firm tannins and a dense color.

Malbec is definitely a red meat wine that is adaptable enough to stand up to spicy Mexican, Cajun, Indian or Italian fare. Consider serving Malbec with barbecue, chili and sausage.

Muscadine Wine Altus AR | Health Benefits Muscadine Grape Altus Arkansas

Because of its high level of antioxidants, Muscadine wine offers the same health benefits as red wine.  Research focusing on the muscadine grape species (Vitis rotundifolia) suggests that there is a greater potential for health benefits from red muscadine wine than from other red grape species.  Muscadine grapes are native to the Southeast region of the United States and have been enjoyed for over 250 years. They have been shown to be rich in total phenolic compounds, ellagic acid, and catechins.

All muscadines have an amazing taste and fragrance and hardiness necessary to survive the hot and humid south. Folk tales and home recipes refer to muscadine jelly, juice and wine, and even muscadine pie.

Post Familie Winery is the largest winery in Arkansas and the first commercial vineyard to bring you home-grown Muscadine Juice and Muscadine Wine.  For more information on this winery and vineyard offering a taste of this unique southern grape in award-winning wine and juice or to order online, visit
