Galia melon/ Mini Galya

Origin - Israel

Days till harvest -

Rind - Round, yellow, lightly netted.   Flesh - Cream/pale green coloured with muskmelon flavour.  Fruit weight - 1 kg.

A canteloupe/muskmelon, honeydew cross.  

My Notes:  I'm not sure if the 'Galya' melon of Turkey is the same as this melon. The only difference I can see is that the Turkish melon is smaller.

There is also a similar hybrid melon called Galia.
