Green River Watermelons - Melon Days
The Green River area in southeastern Utah has become famous for its melons - watermelon, cantaloupe, crenshaw and others. The area's long growing season allows melons to ripen naturally. For decades, farmers have been building the soil to achieve the right balance of nutrients to produce sweet, juicy melons.

The town of Green River hosts an annual Melon Days festival in mid-September, with plenty of produce to taste, along with other activities.

When in season, Green River melons can be purchased at roadside stands in the town of Green River and also from stands and grocery stores all around Utah.
