Melon-choly
« on: September 28, 2012, 02:19:21 AM »
We have seen many melons in the last few months.Remember the various cantaloupes, honeydews and mango melon?




Some people can look at a melon and know what it is and what flesh color it has straight away.So what about this one? What flesh colour will have?

OK it is a cantaloupe or in my language a rockmelon.This type is pale green to gray has light to no netting and it smooth at the ends.It has a musky, sweet flavor typical of good cantaloupes rather than honeydews.

Looking good - are these pure-line selections?
