The Korean Melon

Every once in a while when we drop off our rent payment, we hop on over to the huge Asian grocery store a couple blocks away. I love this place, though it's not exactly convenient for more frequent shopping. On this particular trip, I hovered around the mountain of ripe black plums and convincing myself we needed a few.

The Girl spotted a Korean Melon (apparently also known as yellow melon or dua gan). She wanted to try one. It was only 89 cents and since the crew was looking at me with pleading eyes, I agreed.

I had never tried a Korean Melon and I had no idea what to expect. I didn't even know if the one we chose was ripe...but we sliced into it anyway...

and scooped out the seeds...

and ate it.

The melon was crisp like a fresh apple and smelled a little like honeydew. Everyone gave it a "thumbs up". After trying my slice, I turned back toward my plums but The Girl munched her way through three more slices of the melon all the way down to the thin skin.

Eat the seeds next time, that is the best part.
