Melon Up!¬†allows you to enter your fruit’s assigned serial number, and see where exactly your snack was grown, thereby being able to gauge how far it traveled to get to you.

And according to this map taken directly from the website, these services are available in a number of locations across the United States, Mexico, and Central America! Hooray!

Thank you, Melon Up! for making eating local even more feasible.

Enjoy your weekend!
