juan canary melons

Found a tasty new melon yesterday -- approximately cantaloupe sized, a bit more oblong, and bright canary yellow. Very sweet whitish flesh. Apparently you should look for ones that are softish on the end and fragrant -- mine was a touch overripe, but it was so juicy and sweet that spleen and I just stuck our faces into the melon slices and gnawed. Yum.

Just bought one of these from the grocery store. Delicious! Perfectly juicy and sweet; left my fingers and face positively sticky!

Just bought one from the local Publix Supermarket in Tampa, Florida
Hadn't heard of that fruit before. Very juicy, sweet and flavorful.

I had a Juan Canary melon for the first time yesterday. It was sweet and delicious. It reminded me of a honey dew but with a better flavor and texture.

I saw one of these at the market and thought "how pretty"! I bought it for its coloring to grace the table but curiosity got the better of me and I sliced it open and boy was that GOOD!Love cantaloupe and melon and this combination is to die for!
