Absolutely great

I think melons are pretty hit or miss especially when you don't choose them yourself. However I have had 3 of these over the last month or so and they have all been sweet, juicy & really tasty. One was a little crunchy in texture but the others were lovely.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

ripened at home - very sweet

Left to ripen on fruit bowl for 4 days before eating - it was beautifully sweet.

Unripe but quite sweet

These melons are getting worse as the year progresses and the last two have been rather hard after one week and do not have a great taste

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Sweetness itself

kept these on a sunny window ledge for a few days and then wow, so sweet, so juicy, memorably nice and loved by all including the dog.

Rating: 1 star out of 5

Not sweet at all

No flavour at all. Waste of money.


Melon with Vodka, Orange, and Mint

Melon with Vodka, Orange, and Mint

Variation You can use any kind of melon, but always try and include watermelon, which will absorb the vodka. Cook's Notes Use melons that are only just ripe - they'll still have a bit of bite to them.
