Madhu Ras melon

Origin - India.

Days to ripen -

This is a little, sweet melon.  The name means 'Honey melon'. To my taste they taste just like supermarket rock/musk melons.

My Notes:

These are very productive. The fruits suffer from sunburn in hot weather.

The flavour is pretty standard for a muskmelon but if you want a similar coloured melon with better flavour try 'Ha-Ogen' (also known as Israel)
