This post in not about cooking. It’s about my garden. In fact it’s about a little known melon, called the Tigger Melon and it’s journey from seed to cutting board.
I didn’t take any pictures of us eating it. Silly me! I had read that it was bitter and tasted like cucumbers. I did not find this to be true. I thought it tasted like an unripe cantaloupe. It was kind of hard and as the photos showed, had lots of seeds. Amara thought it was okay. She couldn’t really describe what she thought it tasted like, but then she’s 6! I’ll let my mom and Justin leave comments about what they thought. All in all, it was fun fun to grow but I don’t think I’ll do it again. A lot of the melons shriveled up when they were very small. I planted the seeds in May and so far only 1 was ripened. Lots of vines, not so many fruits.
