Gigantic Winter Melon for Sale

Steve | Oct 9, 201908:41 AM     19

I was outside a small Vietnamese market near my home and snapped the photo below. These are winter melons. I have never seen these monsters before. A lady explained to me that in Vietnam a family would eat from this all year long, just cutting off however much they need for their meal. Sometimes made into a soup, sometimes served stuffed. These were grown in Delaware.

The exterior is very hard, and the white on the outside is mold. The lady I spoke to said (laughingly) that since she lived alone, it would take her three years to use it all up, so she was going for the normal-sized melons. Wise idea, especially if you want to free up some pantry space.
