What Is A Juan Canary Melon?

Once I saw a very strange melon at the store. It looked like a watermelon, but it was very long. The label said “Juan Canary Melon”. I just had to try it, so I bought it.
Here’s the picture of Juan Canary Melon:
Here’s a closeup of the sticker that was on this Juan Canary Melon:
When I cut the Juan Canary Melon, it was yellowish-green inside. Here’s the picture of this melon cut it half:

So, how did Juan Canary Melon taste? Well, the taste was pretty disappointing. It was not sweet at all. Maybe I just got unlucky with that particular melon that I picked out… but the taste was really blah – not sweet, not sour, just bland.
That is a strange melon. I’ve never seen one before. And odd it isn’t sweet. Most melons are.
I love food & cooking as well. I really like your blog, but I think I know you from somewhere else. ;-)
Well, there is a reason that your Juan Canary melon didn’t taste so great…These melons are supposed to be a bright yellow color when you eat them, not green. So that melon was either not ripe or labeled completely wrong.
So, I must agree, wrong label. I just tore into a rich yellow Juan Canary melon and it’s sort of an off the wall sweet but sweet. The green giant you have there is a raw melon from what I can tell, all of the Juan Canary melons I ever got have been labeled as a majesty brand.
