Eggplantt?
no no no

It has come to my attention that I think what I thought was a melon taste may have actually been squash.
Please also consider for 🍆 :

@Canageek turns out, from first-hand experience, eggplant tastes like a something between a melon and a cucumber.

@rockario but eggplant is a nightshade not a cucurbit like cucumbers and melons, plus it doesn't remotely resemble a cucumber or melon texture wise

@alienskyler I would say it kind of resembles a soft melon.
I suppose being a nightshade means I could compare it a tomato, but it doesn't really hit any tomato notes for me

@rockario I would say it resembles a zucchini or summer squash more, which is related to cucumbers and melons

@alienskyler oh! Squash makes a lot of sense, that might be what I was actually thinking of when I thought melon
