I know it's not quite PC to buy boxes of cut up fruit, but I'd struggle to eat six different types of fruit if I bought them all individually. To stop me gorging on cheesecake or trifle etc I bought a box in M&S, and I think other supermarkets do the same (ie melon free) - but why no melon? It's not a common allergen as far as I'm aware...

the water content means it leaks and can cause other fruits to decay quicker

they do a mixed melon separately .. think the high water content is not a good mix with other fruits for any time

Scorpiojo - this box was clearly marked 'melon free'. Was puzzled. Murraymints - 'not a good mix' - why?
Apologies, taichiperson :)

No probs, scorpiojo. I've also asked on FB and apparently there was a salmonella scare on cut up melon in the US, but of course -this isn't the US, and this must have been a 'thing' for a while if it's got to the shops.
Murraymints, do you think it's a digestive matter, or packaging?
It goes off quicker than other fruit
No melon presumably because it's not very nice.
When I was a child I loathed melon, now I love it.

Thanks murraymints, that makes sense :)

Melon is delish with parma ham or prawns.

They do say though not to eat melon with any other fruit because it ferments and can cause bloating and wind.
