It’s Korean melon (chamae/참외) season. Sold everywhere you look: in the market, on the sidewalk, out of trucks. These small yellow melons taste like a cross between a honeydew and an apple. To eat, use a knife to peel the thin yellow skin away and slice up to serve or chomp it like an apple if you don’t want to share. Go ahead and eat the seeds, they may look sizable but they are easy to chew ~ plus that’s about half of the fruit and the veins are the sweetest part.
