Haven’t but I could. Is this a “when did you stop beating your wife” question?

ARE_you_kidding_me's avatar

yes, I have eaten an entire watermelon in one sitting.

Seek's avatar

Probably not. I like cantaloupe in small doses.

I could murder a whole honeydew, though.

If if it is fresh and ripe, no problem.

elbanditoroso's avatar

Yes, I’ve done so, during a leisurely afternoon on the back porch.

This isn’t something I would do regularly, but the time I did it, it tasted great.

ucme's avatar

No, but I can “letterbox” several jaffa cakes when it suits me.

Seek's avatar

A friend who lives near London mailed me a box of Jaffa cakes when I told her that my local store stopped carrying them. They didn’t last 24 hours. Mmm… JaffaCakes.

If I liked them I probably could.

ucme's avatar

Not so much a cake, more a chocolate biscuit with a smashing orangey bit in the middle

dxs's avatar

Definitely. Many of those large fruits (cantaloupe, honey dew, pineapple) are like crack to me. I have to stop myself from eating the whole thing.

jca's avatar

No not even when I was able to eat regular portions would I.

JLeslie's avatar

Usually not, but it would not be completely out of the question.

syz's avatar

Sure.

Kardamom's avatar

No, cantaloupe is one of the few things I don’t like. It looks so pretty, but it tastes kind of metallic to me.

Pachy's avatar

If it’s a really good one—you know, a little soft and very sweet—yes, absolutely.

Aster's avatar

I could and probably have done it.

talljasperman's avatar

No… cantaloupe is for two.

elbanditoroso's avatar

@talljasperman – why? Because without two people you can’t elope?

stanleybmanly's avatar

It’s certainly doable, particularly if that’s all that’s available.

talljasperman's avatar

@elbanditoroso When I was growing up I always shared my cantaloupe with my grandfather.

Espiritus_Corvus's avatar

I have and I will.

Dutchess_III's avatar

If I was starving and hadn’t eaten in 3 days and that’s all there was I would.

cookieman's avatar

No, but I have a relevant joke:

What did Papa Melon say to his daughter when she threatened to marry her boyfriend?

“I’m sorry honeydew, but you cantaloupe.”

Dutchess_III's avatar

^^^ Booo!!!! :D

cookieman's avatar

^^^ Oh, c’mon. That’s a great third-grade joke.

Adagio's avatar

It’s what we call Rock melon here, I just checked out a few images on Google, I could eat half if it is sweet and juicy, not squishy though.
