Rampicante Zuccherino melon

Origin - Italy

Days till harvest -80

Rind -   Flesh - salmon-to-orange. Delicious.  Fruit weight - 1-1.5 kg.

 The name means “climbing sugar melon.” Traditionally grown on trellis or other support, but may be left to creep along the soil’s surface.   

My Notes:   

All seed websites say that these melons should grow to over one kilo but mine are all tiny. Also, I am very disappointed in the productivity - only 2 small fruits each. Probably needs more care.
