Excellent Texture

25 April 2013
This melon ripens quickly from being green to bright orange in just a couple of days. The best thing about this melon is its texture which is soft, smooth & like velvet - unlike most other melons we have eaten - gradually going to a harder rind towards the outside. Flavour is great but not as strong as some. Would grow again.
