Ineya melon

Days till harvest - 80

Rind - Uniform,  a smooth-skinned, hard, golden (when ripe) rind  Flesh - White to very pale cream-colored flesh, crunchy yet juicy. The flavor is positively outstanding, like a honeydew in flavor with overtones of mulberry or banana. 

Fruit weight - 15 to 20 cm fruit

Ripeness indicator - Goes spotty yellow for a week or more before it is ripe. Does not slip.


 My Notes:  First year growing this variety. My fruits are much smaller than that indicated and not very productive.

Flavour is delicious but not very melon-like, hard to describe.
