ROCKY FORD — Cantaloupe season has officially started in Rocky Ford.

The famous golden melons went on sale this week, starting at Knapp's Farm Market.

The juicy fruit is about two weeks late for harvest because of the weather, but despite the later date, the owner says her market is getting busy.

"We love cantaloupe season, we love seeing all the people come here to sample some of our sweet juicy fruit," Gail Knapp from Knapp's Farm Market said.

The owner says you can expect to see Rocky Ford cantaloupes in the grocery stores in the next two to three weeks.
