Have You Ever Seen a Yellow Watermelon?

This is just too cool not to share.

I picked up a watermelon at the farm last week. It was a big produce week -- even with a half share, I was able to pick six items. This watermelon was one of my picks.

It took a while to get around to cutting it open. When I finally did, I was surprised to find a yellow -- yes, yellow -- watermelom.

What a wonderful unexpected surprise! Perfect for a Labor Day picnic!

What's the most surprising or exotic fruit or vegetable that you have found this summer?

I have seen yellow watermelon, but never had it. Was it sweeter?

Not sweeter, just prettier. The taste is almost identical to red watermelon.
