By the Way, if your interested in melons- especially beauties like Cavaillons in picture, read on.

Cavaillon a town in Vaucluse hosts The Fête du Melon. This festival features melon tastings, melon markets, melon menus, a firework display and the inevitable pétanque tournament. It is held the second week of July.

From the experts of Cavaillon, the following are tips for evaluating melons. The heavier the melon the better, as ripe melons are engorged with juice and sugar. The stalk (le pécou) protruding bit -should be loose and easy to pull – be careful not pull off if your not going to buy and the melon should be richly perfumed around the base.
All sounds like fun and good advice.

The insiders also offer this tip for spotting a ripe Cavaillon melon - count the stripes. They should be a deep blueish-green colour and there should be ten of them. If there are nine or eleven stripes, the melon could be tasteless or past its best.
