Chameh, Korean melon

Pat Hammond | Sep 2, 2007 11:15 AM

I bought this lovely yellow melon at a local farmer's market. I thought for sure it was a squash, until I asked. It's pear-shaped and the flesh is the color of pear. It's mildly flavored, hinting at both watermelon and cantaloupe. I'm not sure mine was ripe enough eat, but eat it I did, seeds and all. I'll buy another and this time leave it out until it softens up a little.
