Melon de Castilla melon

Origin - Mexico. From the Sierra Madre in Mexico

Days till harvest -

Rind - pale yellow, smooth skin.  Flesh - Light orange, deliciously sweet  Fruit weight -

 

My Notes:   

This is an old, traditional variety. Many of these old  varieties are not as sweet as we prefer melons today, and they often show some variability of fruit colour and shape.

Try them and see but they might be best used for breeding and as a gene resource.
