Melon Unboxing.

Working from home, I don’t eat particularly well. It should be the opposite: more time to cook, prepare lunch and so on. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work like that. I am mostly sustained by wholemeal toast in the morning, and Dr Pepper in the afternoon.

Today, I decided not to do that. I bought a melon.

It’s a Charentais melon (or ‘Sharon Tate‘ melon). It’s quite pricey at £2.49, but I am treating myself so it’s okay.

From the outside, it looks a lot like the standard Canteloupe. It’s so much more rewarding than that. Let’s have a look inside.

What a lovely burst of colour coming through.

Look at that delicious flesh.

Deseeded, I quartered the melon then cut it into small cubes.

Attempting to shoehorn my 5-a-day (35-a-week) into one go, I ate it all. I have a burning sensation in my throat and a slightly odd vitamin C high.
