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.

Uneatable

Bought 2 melons in buy one get one free. One was totally mushy inside and had a terrible smell and the other also smelt bad and the flesh was pappy and tasted like it had been in storage for months. Both were thrown away. Customer service were very helpful and refunded the money but melons are normally at their best at this time of year so I am surprised that they were so bad. Would have given no stars if it had been possible.

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.
