(Cucumis melo)    Spanish heirloom also known as 'The Santa Claus Melon' or 'Christmas Melon'.  Its name is derived from its blotched green skin which in Spanish is translated as 'Toad Skin'.  Its English name 'Christmas Melon' is in recognition of its long storage ability, staying viable 'until Christmas' in the northern hemisphere.  Large, long & oval shaped melon up to 30cm across with thick, green striped outer rind and pale green to white, sweet inner flesh.  Because of the melon's thick skin, it does not release the tell-tale aroma when ripe, but rather becomes soft and vibrant yellow at the blossom end.  60 seeds
