Re: Going Veggie

I'm not a fan of cantaloupe because of it's taste and texture. It just doesn't appeal to me. Honeydew is okay, papaya is fantastic. I love watermelon, though, and the texture is appealing. I love that it's mostly water. I have found that a slice of watermelon quenches my thirst better than a glass of water.

This is denser slightly and has an almost honey taste. More flavour all round.
I might like it. The thing I dislike so much about watermelon is the texture. It's always really bothered me, while I'm fond of other melons. It's boring, but cantaloupe is probably my favorite. Take a half, fill the pit with plain yogurt, and top with blueberries and it's pretty much a perfect lunch.
Other than being a bit denser (and this is over analysis) it's the same texture. Watermelon bores me and I rarely eat it, but I can't go past a fruit I've never had before. Next time I'm buying the white one.

I'm not much of a melon fan but I eat about 5 papayas a week (which are not melons, lol).
When I was in India I had papaya every day for breakfast. A month of fresh papayas, it was heavenly!

Re: Going Veggie

And now I'm making green papaya salad a lot, I'll have to take some pics.

To me it's the best fruit ever. I like the seeds too, I always munch on a few of those.

Re: Going Veggie

I love papaya, though I'd have to say mango tops it on my list of best fruits. I've loved mango since I was an infant. My mom apparently gave me the pits to suck on when I was teething and I've been addicted ever since!

A tiny tsq happily sucking away on mango pits? The cute would probably kill me!

Re: Going Veggie

I'm an all tropical person. Pineapple, papaya, many many mangos, longans and their ilk.. coconut flavored anything.

Re: Going Veggie

Love coconut. I got addicted to coconut many years ago when a friend put fried coconut on top of some vanilla ice cream I was eating. It was fantastic, and I've loved it ever since.

Re: Going Veggie

Have you ever had coconut ice cream? It's fabulous.

No, I've never had coconut ice cream. I've had coconut pudding, which was a dream on a spoon, but never ice cream.

Look I've got yellow watermelon!!

They had white ones too but I didn't buy one.. the yellow watermelon is much sweeter than the red ones.

Thanks for the pic! Yellow watermelon is a cross between cantaloupe and watermelon. Since I am not a cantaloupe fan, yellow watermelon does not appeal to me either.

A family friend owns plantations in Hawaii. For the best tasting watermelon EVER, try a Hawaiian! That is saying much, because I am a bit of a watermelon connoisseur.

Re: Going Veggie

It's not literally a cross as far as I can read. And I don't think it has any flavour resemblance if that's what you meant.

Was it upsetting because you ate the friendliest of fruits?

We must agree to disagree. I don't care for the flavor because of the overwhelming cantaloupe flavor.
