Santa Domingo Native melon

Origin - USA, Santo Domingo Pueblo

Days till harvest -

Rind -Oblong, ribbed, and have predominantly smooth skin. Some netting or "cracking" occurs.    Flesh - Orange and tasty.  Fruit weight -

 These are typical of the "native" melons grown for hundreds of years in the pueblos of New Mexico. 

My Notes:   

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