I am a melon fanatic. Many, many melons go into the compost every summer because they just don't do it for me. A couple of years ago Tuscan melons appeared and I was in heaven. It seemed that every Tuscan bought was soft, fragrant, sweet, and had that slightly musky flavor of a great cantaloupe.
But I haven't had a decent Tuscan for a long, long time. The other day I bought a Sugar Kiss melon at Berkeley Bowl. I never thought I would find a melon too sweet, but this one is nothing but a sugar bomb. The texture is fine, but it is so cloying that I taste nothing but sugar.
Kind of reminds me of some of the white corn I've had. (I am also a corn fanatic, and sometimes the new varieties of white corn can be so sweet that the taste of the corn itself is nearly lost.)
