The heavyweight of the fruit world. Hmm.... a fairly tasteless fruit, but not bad nonetheless. Similar to the Kiwi fruit in texture and even in taste - but with all the juicy tang squeezed out. What don't I really like about the melon then? Well I can answer this question by asking melon-lovers, "what don't they like about eating plain cucumber?". No wonder it's a member
of the cucu
rbit plant family. Very big - that's for sure.
I think I've tasted mosted of the popular types including the watermelon and canteloupe. I recently tasted the slightly more favourable 'Honey dew' melon, but it still has that typical 'cucumber' taste that seems to plague all melons. [Back to top]
