Brazil 2017

Research for this week's fruit was made easy. Our Sainsbury's store has a beautiful range of melons each proudly displaying a label of origin, all readying 'Brazil'. I have no idea whether people in Brazil eat melon, but we'll presume so.

Any normal human being might select one such variant of melon. We had them all.

I was not inspired to bake with melons, so Heidi and I ate them as they came.

1. Honeydew - a delicate with no cause for dislike.
2. Galia - Heidi proclaimed, "Smells like nail polish". Though the flavour is similar to honeydew, the fragrance was overriding and put us off a little.
3. Cantaloupe - My favourite, as it was the furthest flavour from water.
4. Watermelon - Heidi's long established favourite fruit (though mango established a new favourite when we ate for Australia at the start of the season)

School lunch boxes will be full of this for weeks to come.

While I wait for Heidi to finish her school reading
