For anyone who has traveled in the Mediterranean, particularly Italy and Greece, and has been searching for a melon to rival the honey-sweet taste of the beauties over there….I have made a discovery! Although I cannot replicate the experience of a hillside villa in Tuscany in late afternoon with a glass of Pinot Grigio and some perfectly aged Parmesano Reggiano and prosciutto, this Sugar Kiss melon will take you back.
Found at my local Walmart of all places, these mini gems are only slightly larger than a softball and have the appearance of an average cantelope. I personally could eat the whole thing… it is THAT good!
Now I’ll just keep repeating to myself….you are in Santorini, sipping Vin Santo and enjoying a slice of kefalotiri and melon on your balcony overlooking the Aegean Sea…..
