Thanks to flexible and diverse growing locations, Legend Produce supplies cantaloupe year-round to customers throughout the US.
We grow domestically from May through November by transitioning between Yuma (AZ), Maricopa (AZ), and San Joaquin Valley (CA) as the weather changes.
Between December and May, we import melons from Central America to ports nation-wide.

Legend Produce – 2022
We had a great 2022 import season for melons out of Honduras including the beautiful specialty variety - Gaya melon (see in image to the right).
And for the exciting news, the domestic Origami melon is beautiful right now being harvested in CA. We are thrilled to see the current progress of our fields and are anticipating a strong season from this region.
Only the highest quality melons are grown and shipped to our customers across the country. We ensure only the freshest melons make it into our boxes and onto your tables.
We are here to discuss our programs and help you with all your melon needs.
