Have you ever had a Galia melon? It looks like a cantaloupe on the outside and a honeydew on the inside. The taste is a blend of the two flavors - if you get a good one it is soooo sweet! Has anyone else ever had one?
I first discovered Galia melons many years ago during a trip to Israel. But I have only seen them in the US maybe half a dozen times, usually by the other specialty melons, and usually in a gourmet fruit store, and usually pricey. But the other day I actually found one at Kroger! So I had melon for dessert for several days. Mmmmmm - if you ever find one, I highly recommend giving it a try!
