Hand Register of the Day: Lemon Drop Melons

Jul 13 2011

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.

    Actually Shane you registered the singular version, LemonDropMelon.com.

    One of your readers grabbed the plural earlier today.

    It was me! I’m the culprit.

    I figured you only wanted the singular as that’s all that you registered. But if you want the plural – it’s yours. Just email me and I’ll push to your GoDaddy account (maybe in exchange for a link via one of your old posts?? or not – either way is fine).

    Cheers.
