Another one of Joe;s incredible Cucumber Melon finds from Southern Italy. This is just the salad makers dream. These melons are crispy-crunchy and perfectly "nutty" tasting! They are picked while the melons are still smallish ( 4" - 5") and they are used exactly like a cucumber, except to Joe's experience they don't even need to be pealed! They will grow wherever melons grow, they like heat and adequate moisture.
