Taste test: These seeds were identified as "Melon Seeds" without specifying which kind of melon, and they looked similar to pumpkin seeds, except smaller.
They took some effort to bite into and had a salty, vaguely burnt taste. One of our tasters pegged the taste as being somewhere between a sunflower seed and a pumpkin seed. A bit of an odd one because of the vague "Melon" involved, but pretty good.
