Are Melons Good?
Kelly Conaboy

I love melons when they are perfectly ripe. The big problem, I think, is that a lot of melons are picked when they are still a little under-ripe so they won’t spoil during the transport from farm to store. If that distance is really far, say from outside the US, they will pick them earlier still. This means that the melons don’t get that last bit of on-the-vine growth and I’m convinced that why so many of them have less flavor.
