Very tasteless

Better not to propose this product...Not good for company's image...I expect better...

Maybe worth a gamble

I wrote a review a couple of days ago saying "Totally unripe, and even after being left in the sun for days was hard and tasteless. Cantaloupes are my favourite melon. I've never had one this awful before." But I had got two cantaloupes together. I left the second one for another two days to ripen in the sun and this one was perfect -absolutely deliciously. .

Small but yummy

Fruit was quite little but the flesh was delicious and sweet!

mouldy after less than two days

I was very disappointed with this melon. Had it delivered on Saturday evening, by Monday morning it was completely mouldy and I had to throw it away. Shame as I've had it before and the taste is nice.

Taken for a melon!

I bought one of these from Tesco last week and was very satisfied. So when I opened the bag tonight and saw the one delivered I was both disappointed and annoyed. I've seen bigger golf balls!
