About Spanish melon Edit
Spanish melon is a large, egg-shaped melon covered with ribbed, green skin. The insides of the melon contain pale, green flesh. These are delicious melons, but it's hard to know when they're fully ripe. Unlike most other melons, a ripe Spanish melon will have a green rind and be firm at the blossom end. Substitutes include cranshaw melon or casaba melon.
