Dinosaur egg melon

Melone dino 1,99€/kilo

Small (around a kilo), typical honeydew pale-green flesh, mildly sweet. This is the first time I’ve seen melone dino in a supermarket (Iperal to be exact). With a name like that, you’d have to be anti-Jurassic Park to give this cutie the snub, and yes, I went for the clever bebe dino sticker marketing ploy. When I looked it up on wikipedia, I was delighted to discover that this melon goes by many names and was originally developed in Japan.

Refreshing yet savory with a slice of speck (smoked, cured ham), this has been in rotation on the summer menu as it’s a no-cook option followed by bread and cheese. And white wine! I’m partial to cantaloupe more than honeydew cultivars, but this melon is great for its small size.
