Turkey is famous for melons, and one taste of this bespeckled beauty you will know that fame is well deserved. The flesh is white and tender and the rind is hard and thick, helping make these good keepers! Named for the city of Alaçatıa, a Turkish town on the Aegean Sea famous for its vineyards and its windmills.

What are the pros? Sweet, unusual, personal sized

What are the cons? Waiting for them to ripen.

Review:

I fell in love with these guys when I was stationed in Turkey. I was THRILLED to see them offered here. Sweet, juicy, with a taste combining watermelon and cantaloupe. Crisp-ish. Serve chilled, and mentioned above, drizzle a little honey to bring the flavor out, but they’re also great alone.

What are the pros? This melon grew in Washington!

What are the cons? None

Review:

Seeds started indoors and then transplanted after Mother's Day. Vines grow about 8 feet long. Melons are a nice size at 1-2 pounds each. Do not be in a rush to harvest the melon. When the fruit is ripe, the exterior skin picks up a cast that appears slightly yellowish/orange. The fruit is juicy and the flavor is mild. A drizzle of honey really enhances the flavor. --so glad this Turkish melon was brought to the United States!
