Kazakh melon

Origin - Kazakhstan

Days till harvest - Early

Rind - Green fruits turn golden when ripe.  Flesh - high sugar content and finely flavored. Tastes very fruity and tropical.  Fruit weight - To 1 kg.

Ripeness indicator - Turns golden yellow. Slips when fully ripe.

This variety is early, resistant to drought, and a good climber. An ancient type of melon from central Asia. 

My Notes:   

Took a long time to get going. 8 fruits on 2 plants. Although the fruits were late it tastes good and different enough for me to grow again next year.
