Days to ripen -

Rind - Round or elongated. Yellow/green. Smooth and ribbed  Flesh -  light green, smooth and very sweet.

Ripeness indicator - Turns a lighter green. Slips and cracks if over-ripe so you need to pick it when it changes colour and needs a little tug to get off the vine.    

 My Notes

Only managed to get one plant to survive and it only has one fruit on it. It had better be good.

Update - the fruit was good and I will be growing again.
