New food... what to do with it?

Gardener972(7b-8a DFW)July 28, 2011

I was at the Asian market today and picked up "young watermelon" which is about the size of a giant lemon but looking very much like a baby watermelon. How does one prepare it? I'm told to cook it.

I also picked up what I was told was "Chinese melon" which is a long oval, green and white (cream colored) stripes and was told to cook it and I would know when it's ripe when it splits open. ?? How do I prepare that?
