An improved Crenshaw variety. Oval fruit are about 5 lbs. each and have a creamy white rind when ripe, flesh is salmon-pink, extra sweet and of a very fine flavor. Great for specialty markets and shipping.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Hoped for Crenshaw flavor

Review:

Advantages: Vigorous vines take heat. Rind not as soft as Crenshaw (but softer than the typical netted muskmelon). Prettier than Crenshaw. Pale fruit less susceptible to sunscald and splitting than Crenshaw (I still provided some sun protection). Picked fruit 2 days after the small leaf nearest fruit dried completely. Stem slipped from fruit with very firm pressure. Fruit had softened slightly, especially at the blossom end. Rind color cream with fine, sparse netting, slight yellow blush on top side and faint green streaking at both ends. Not over-ripe at this stage. Salmon flesh extended almost to the rind, 2 inches thick in a 6.25 inch diameter melon. Very juicy, tender, slightly fibrous. Flavor lighter, not as complex as Crenshaw, has a honey-like note. Refreshing chilled. I like the flavor and texture of Crenshaw a little better, but Crenshaw Blanco is an easier melon to grow. Remember to restrict water as the melon ripens.
