Dear Pepino Melon,
I got you at Eataly in New York, and you are not very good. You’re like a cucumber-flavored honeydew, but not sweet. No, thanks.

Well, see? Now you know. Mission accomplished!
They’re supposed to be sweet, maybe yours wasn’t ripe enough?
Oh, it definitely wasn’t ripe enough, or you just got a bad one! I love them! Pepino melons (or “pepino dulce” in Spanish) should be sweet, very melony and drippy juicy. It should also be softish when you press the skin and smell fragrant and melon-y even before you cut it.
