When we went back to the fruit stand this week, I wanted to get another Orange Flesh Cantaline Melon since it was so good, but they didn’t have any. But they did have another new kind of melon – a Sharlin!
This one is really pretty! It looks a lot more like a cantaloupe than the Cantaline melon, even though both of them are hybrids of cantaloupe and honeydew. But when I cut this one open, I got a big surprise – actually two big surprises! First off, the seeds aren’t attached! They just poured out – and made a mess, lol. And second, this melon is a pale, creamy white color. It has a very mild taste, and it might be just a tiny bit sweeter than a cantaloupe. I liked this one, too, and I wonder what kind of new melon the fruit stand will have when I go back next week?
