Almost all the summer markets in the Lot-et-Garonne sell these melons. Some supermarkets sell them, but check where they come from when purchasing.
The Lectoure-Nérac melon has a reputation that is well established in the region. The melon production area mainly spans two departements: the Lot-et-Garonne and the Gers. The Lectoure-Nerac melon is a yellow-skinned Charentais melon with an orange flesh.
It has a characteristic intensity to its aroma. The flavours it gives off are fruity and well-rounded that linger on the palate. You can eat it as is, cut in half with the seeds removed, served as a dessert or a starter. it’s the perfect match for Bayonne cured ham.
