The Point Puzzle

The Point Puzzle is a weekly puzzle challenging listeners with word puzzles and logic puzzles. Every week a winner from the last week is selected from emailed answers and announced on air and a new puzzle is posed.

The puzzle airs on KPOV on “The Point” on Wednesday mornings between 9:00 am and 9:30 am and replays at 5pm just before Open Air.

Puzzle 220, week of July 24th:
Getting out of work in the summer to enjoy the long summer evenings, I’ve been thinking (or more precisely eating) a lot of summer fruit.
So for this week, I’ve got an easy puzzle for your summer brain about summer fruit.
I’m looking for a berry. Replace one letter with a different letter, rearrange them and you will have a melon.
So, something berry, change a letter, rearrange them and you will have something melon.
