    I've never really eaten melon before , i went round a friends for lunch a week ago and afterwards she bought out a big plate of galia melon!... i couldn't stop eating it , was delicious...
    since then i've gone through 3 of the things, i've also tried cantelope which was just as nice.
    I was told to buy one and wait a few days before having it...what a great tip was so tender mouth watering...
    i've also got some to take to work today..
    basically what im saying is try it its lovely completely 3 and very moreish...
    i used to enjoy pineapple but melon is where its at lol

    If you freeze melon, it goes all lovely and hard... 'n' then you have to suck it before you can chew IYSWIM (Ooh err.)

    I love melon as well - it's absolutely delicious in fruit salad if you add some sliced banana, some grapes, bits of orange - whatever other fruit you like really :)

    I love melon!!!! I have a balled a whole one and brought it to work with me today! I find that's the best way to eat it, in those little balls :D

    It's a shame it's quite expensive - but isnt all fruit these days!!!

    I love it too!! One never lasts long in my house :) I like all the varieties but the green piel del sapo is my fave. But I do love classic honeydew as well...but then watermelon is lush...or a lovely, ripe canteloupe...*swoon*

    am a huge fan of all fruit but at moment really into pink grapefruit i always have one and a yogurt for dessert but just to be different i peel it, then take each one out of its 'skin' so its just all fruit then eat it from a bowl so it takes me about 20 mins to prepare but sooo worth the wait lol

    We can't get melon until it's back in season, but oooooooh, my mouth's drooling already. We get honeydew, those little green ones with orange flesh (what are they called?) and then proper watermelon, which I'd never had before (only in alcopops :D) but is to die for.

    Pass the drool box . . .

    I do that too! Takes me ages, but it's worth the effort. I don't sweeten it though. I just take it as it comes.
