It looks like a cantaloupe.
But let me assure you...it's not a cantaloupe.
Cantaloupes are good. Especially sweet cantaloupes are fantastic. But a Sugar Kiss Melon is better than I ever imagined possible. I'm ranking it up there with Medjool dates as one of the best fruits God ever created.
I bought one on a lark while browsing Central Market yesterday and boy am I glad I did. I'll be getting them every chance I have now because tasting one of these is like sampling Heaven.
I did a little research online and found that you can actually serve these melons with a bit of prosciutto and basil leaf for an out of this world appetizer. They are amazing on their own, but that combination sounds great to me. I can't wait to try it!
I know what you're thinking. It looks like an ordinary cantaloupe, big deal. It IS a BIG deal. I want to reach through the computer screen, grab everyone by the collar and demand that they try a Sugar Kiss Melon as soon as possible. Yes, I probably need some sort of medication if fruit can excite me this much...I know it's crazy, but it's just that good.
Trust me on this, ok?
