Gaucho melon

Origin - Brazil

Days till harvest -

Rind - A beautiful melon with a golden rind with deep ribs   Flesh - Creamy-yellow flesh is very aromatic and juicy  Fruit weight - around 1kg

Ripeness indicator - Slips when partly yellow. Lightly fragrant. If you leave them on the vine till they are fully yellow they will be over-ripe and split.

It is one of the most popular home garden varieties in Brazil.

My Notes:   First year growing this variety. The flesh is very soft and creamy. The texture is not to my taste but I think many people will like it. Very productive with 25 fruits on 5 plants.
