Morris the Melon springs into Toronto

Through the social initiative, Love My Salad, Rijk Zwaan Australia will support the Greater Toronto Spring Fair by bringing the loveable character Morris the Melon to town.

The cheerful rockmelon will cut it up on stage during two 20-minute performances and take the audience on an exciting journey to discover the array of melon varieties. 

The annual Spring Fair is on Saturday 21 October and will showcase all the lakeside suburb has to offer through a fun-filled day of displays, stalls, entertainment and activities. Rijk Zwaan has an office in Toronto, which is 1.5 hours north of Sydney in New South Wales.

Love My Salad representative, Frances Tolson, said the Fair is a wonderful opportunity for Love My Salad to engage with the community. 

“While singing and dancing the melon dance, Morris and his friend Bruce will teach kids about all types of melons and encourage them to ‘cut them up and share’,” Frances said. 

Love My Salad is a global community of salad lovers dedicated to sharing knowledge and inspiration about vegetables and salads. As such, the melon excitement won’t stop when the Fair ends. 

“To continue the fun, Morris will also be handing out melon seeds so kids, and even bigger kids, can try their hand in growing their own rockmelons!” Frances said. 

“There are resources on the Love My Salad website that will help our amateur growers’ rockmelon plants to flourish, and we encourage everyone to share their rockmelon journey by uploading progress photos to social media using the hashtag #lovemysalad,” she said. 

The Spring Fair will run from 9am to 3pm at the Toronto Boulevard and Morris will perform from 12 – 12.30 and 1 – 1.30pm. Please visit Morris’s profile on Love My Salad for more information.
