Sunflower market had organic cantaloupes on sale this week. We went there, only to discover they were sold out. I asked for a rain check on the melons at the register, and the cashier reached under her work area and pulled out a cantaloupe. Apparently someone picked up an organic one by mistake, and didn't want it when checking out.
At first I was tempted to turn up my nose to the melon she handed me. It was kind of bumpy with some soft spots, and had I been selecting a melon from the produce section, I would not have selected that one. I might have considered it a reject. But, hey, it was the laaaaaast melon (think Ice Age), so I bought it.
SO GLAD!! What a yummy cantaloupe! Probably the best one we've had this summer. Just goes to show you cannot judge a melon by it's cover.
