Sweet, ripe fruits like these peaches and honeydew melon are luscious on a hot summer’s day. These particular ones were ripe almost to the point of being over-ripe, which made their flesh gloriously sweet and meltingly tender and their abundant juice burst out with each bite.
The aptly named honeydew melon does indeed have a honey-like sweetness to it with what I a can only describe as an underlying hint of banana, while the golden, red-orange flesh of the peaches is simply exquisite.
These fruits cry out summer and demand to be eaten greedily like a child, with juice running down you, whilst lying on the grass outside in the sun.
