Description

Melon - Piel de Sapo - Cucumis melo

Tender Annual Heirloom. A Spanish melon with sweet, crisp, white flesh. The 8" fruit has speckled skin, hence its Spanish name as "toad skin". Vigorous vines produce fruits that some say tastes like a white watermelon or a sweet cucumber.

Did You Know? Piel de sapo is the most popular melon in Spain.

Soil and Water: Melons like moderately rich, well-drained soils with plenty of phosphorous and potassium and a pH of 6.0-6.8. For flavorful fruits, melons need moderate water as seedlings, low water before transplanting, moderate water during growth, and low, even water during fruit development.

Planting and Growing: Start seeds indoors 2-3 weeks before the last frost or seed directly after the last frost. Melons need plentiful heat to develop; use plastic mulch and row covers in cooler climates.

Harvesting and Storage: Melon gets increasingly yellow as it ripens and the hard rind becomes springy at one end. A good keeper that continues to ripen off the vine, it is often called the Santa melon because it can keep until Christmas.
