Melons are just a disappointment. A crap shoot. You never know what your’e going to get. I have thrown away 3 of them and a small watermelon I ate out of spite. I bought this “sugar cube” at a farm stand near my cottage. Sugar cube my ass. It was bitter and unpleasant. I couldn’t even bring myself to taste it a second time. I threw it out.
When I was a kid it was a struggle to get them before the raccoons. The raccoons can have these.
