honoring Justin Timberlake... with a cantaloupe

Justin Timberlake is coming to Israel and will be giving a concert in Tel Aviv on Wednesday, Yom Yerushalayim...

While I appreciate Timberlake coming to Israel to perform, his arrival is not really any more noteworthy, for me at least, then that of any of the many performers who come to Israel, whether for private tours and to show support or to give performances. We appreciate the support of each and every one of them, even if I do not go to their concerts...

So what is special about Timberlake?

The innovative fruit and vegetable growers of Ein Yahav have created a tribute to Timberlake (though I don't know why him rather than any of the others who have and will come) and have raised a new breed of melon that they are naming after Timberlake.

The new melon is yellowish on the outside and orange on the inside and is very sweet and tasty. The new melon has a shelf life of 3 weeks, and will hit the supermarkets in time for the upcoming holidays (I assume that means Rosh Hashana-Sukkot)...

to me it just looks like a cantaloupe, but I guess it must be a little different

  1. He's not just an accomplished singer, but also a pretty good actor, and made the transition from teen to adult performer.

    Oh, whoops! I just had a "galut moment." You're right. Who cares?

    P. S. I have never been able to stand cantaloupe! :-/ How is that "honoring" anyone? (No offense to cantaloupe growers)
