You can use a wide variety of melons in with this recipe. Honeydew, Cantaloupe, Crenshaw, Casaba are all very nice. Very simple. The melon drinks up the port and makes a cooling summer-time dessert for adults. Be careful not to let it sit too long or the alcohol with absorb into the rind. Can be doubled or tripled easily. Cooking time is time to stand.
