Local Bounty: Sprite Melon
I am not sure why new foods excite me so much, but when I went to the farmer's market the other day, I picked up a melon that I had never seen or heard of before. This yellow melon is called a Sprite melon (or so I was told by the local farmer). While it does not taste much like Sprite, it is very sweet and similar to a cantaloupe. The texture is similar to a pear though. I was told to remove the skin and scoop out the seeds before eating it. So that is exactly what I did. It was a fun new food to try!
