We've lost one of our troops to some sort of bug it seems. The pit right in the middle went pretty deep into the center of the fruit. It wouldn't be getting any bigger and cutting it up would have been only a bite.
After cutting in down the hole I found that the hole turned after entering. There's almost no room for the orange goodness to develop.
Cutting into the right slice reveals the hole going even deeper into the middle of the melon.
Fortunately for me there are still many melons to go. Unfortunately the weather is getting cooler and there's not much more time for the melons to develop. There are only two good candidates for maturity but they'll sure be sweet.
