Edirne Melon

Origin - Turkey. 

Days to ripen -

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

Fruit weight -  1 - 2kg

Ripeness indicator - Turns a lighter green tinged with yellow. 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

The texture is a bit too soft and creamy for my taste but many people like it.
