Mr Honeydew: My, my Ms. Cantaloupe, you are looking mighty fine.

Ms. Cantaloupe: (shyly) Oh dear, thank you for the compliment. But, my kind don’t usually go with your kind.

Mr. Honeydew: Oh but Ms. Cantaloupe, let’s not be confined by the ideals of society.

Torrid affair ensues. A year later…

Ms. Cantaloupe: My darling, she is just beautiful! What should we call her?

Mr. Honeydew: Let’s call her Temptation Melon to celebrate our unbridled romance.
Ms. Cantaloupe: A bit risque for our precious baby, don’t you think? But, she is beautiful and sweet and will tempt many a palate. She has your smooth, soft skin as well as your fragrance.

Mr. Honeydew: And she has your sweet, succulent flavor and vibrant orange flesh.

Ms. Cantaloupe: She truly is the best of both of us!

    Cute little story. I must try one of these melons!

  2. Color Says:

    [...] The people who put together my weekly produce “grab bag” must also be fascinated by color because they love to include surprises. You may remember my instant love affair with the purple cauliflower, or the discovery of the orange-fleshed honeydew melon. This week, I was delighted by purple potatoes and yellow watermelon. Perhaps these fruit and vegetable color change-ups are just genetic gimmicks to intrigue us into buying them. Whatever it is, I love it. It reminds me that watermelon does not have to be red, that carrots are not always orange, that potatoes and cauliflower want to wear color sometimes too and that trees are NOT just green.
