What type of melons do you like to munch on on a hot day - the traditional rock and water melons, or something more exotic?

Vegetable seed breeder Graham Adams says he's dealing with many more unusual types of melons because Australian consumers are becoming more adventurous with their tastes.

He says French and South American varieties offer extra sweetness and different textures.

An increase in multinational residents and more worldly Australia attitudes are thought to be driving the trend.

"There's a lot of international people in Australia, and with that comes whole different tastes that they need, and I think also Australians are very worldly-wise these days.

"They travel, they see, they taste and so they go overseas and they see something and they want to bring it back to Australia," Mr Adams said.
