Santa Claus what?

Have you ever heard of a Santa Claus Melon??
I hadn't before. I saw this little guy in the produce dept. the other day, and figured, with a name like that, I've just got to try it out.
aaahhh! Now I get it. It's snow-white interior (ok, maybe not snow white) is the reason for the name.

Ok, but how does it taste?

It's pretty good. It has a very subtle cantaloupe flavor with a hint of melon. Not quite the same flavor as a honeydew.
