I came home from a business trip yesterday and reached into the bowl in the fridge that year round is the endless bottom bowl of fruit. I was happy to see some melon in it and took out a small bowl. As I took my first bite I realized this wasn’t a normal melon. The taste started like melon but ended with the taste of a lemon drop. Yeah, the candy lemon drop. It was one of the craziest tastes I’ve ever had from a fruit. I immediately called my wife to find out what in the heck was in the bowl.
She told me it was called a LemonDrop Melon. Considering the taste, that is about as good of a name as they could have found. It’s absolutely delicious and finishes clean and tart. It would be perfect for putting a slice in a glass of water for a little lemon zest. I think these things are here to stay and so I added yet another name to my “designer fruit” collection of domain names. I registered LemonDropMelons.com and since there aren’t really any sites talking to much about these things I though I would set up a quick site this weekend for people to talk about it. In the mean time I’m going to buy a few more of these while I can because they don’t seem to last long on the shelves of Sam’s and Meijers.
