Directions:

  1. Combine the ginger, ginger syrup, sugar, and 1/2 cup of water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Simmer for 5-6 minutes until slightly reduced. Remove from the heat, stir in the lime zest and juice and the pomegranate seeds. Let cool.
  2. Peel the mangoes. Use a sharp knife to cut the flesh away from the stones. Slice the mango and arrange the slices on a plate. Halve, seed, and peel the papaya. Cut into wedges and arrange on the mango. Halve and seed the melon. Cut the melon flesh into bite-sized chunks. Add to the mango and papaya.
  3. Spoon the ginger dressing over the fruit. Serve with lime wedges.
