High-Quality Produce Straight from the Farm
The farmers at Freyco oversee acre upon acre of farming operations across multiple states in the U.S. allowing for a constant supply of produce in the growing seasons to keep our loyal customers coming back for more.
Specializing in watermelons and pumpkins, we personally supervise every aspect of the farming process from planting and growing, to harvesting and shipping, ensuring that it reaches your family's table safely and at the perfect stage of ripeness.
Take a Bite Out of Summer
Every year, our watermelon fields get busy across Florida, Georgia, Indiana, and Illinois. Serving up sweet, seeded and seedless watermelons to our retailers, we want to make sure every bite is the sweetest.
From giant picnic-sized melons to the smaller personal-sized varieties, we've got a great lineup of watermelons for any occasion.Picking the perfect melon
Give it a lift
Lift up a firm and symmetrical melon that is free of bruises, cuts, and dents. Since about 92% of the melon's weight is water, it should feel heavy for it's size.
When compared to a melon of the same size, the heavier one will be more ripe. Avoid melons that are lighter than those that are smaller, that means the melon is old and has started to lose moisture
give it a look
Look for the "field spot" on the belly of the melon. The area should be yellow with vein-like webbing that indicates the melon is sweet and ripe. Unlike some other fruit, watermelon will cease to ripen once picked.
give it a thump
Thumping a ripe melon with your knuckle should produce a deep and hollow sound, like "pong." Underripe, the melon will have a high-pitched resonance, like "ping."
