Melon Spanish Whimsy F1

  • Botanical Name: Cucumis melo

Most popular Spanish rockmelon with crisp white/pale green flesh and a mottled green skin in the style of Piel de Sapo which means frog's skin. Pairs well with cheese and walnuts and a sweet dessert wine. The hard rind makes it a good keeper. Cut the 25-30cm fruits from the vine when they change colour from dark green to medium green and the blossom end softens slightly.

Matures 100 days from Transplant.
