Cantaloupes are in the market now, and they range in price from $0.70-$0.90 per pound, which, I think is pretty good.

While these clearly aren't Pecos cantaloupes - which are in very short supply this year, I'm told they are very good. Since I don't like melon - of any kind - I can't verify those reports.

The Israeli cantaloupes are more oval than the American melons I'm more familiar with. I also noticed that they are alternatively called pineapple melons or orange pineapples on the price signs, which sounds funny to me. I don't understand the pineapple connection.
