Persian Melons

Persian melons look like a larger, rounder, heavily-netted, unridged cantaloupe. The grayish-green color of the rind turns a tan color when ripe. The melon's flesh is coral colored, aromatic and sweet. Its texture is buttery and firm. A perfectly ripe Persian melon will feel heavy for its size and release strong fragrances from  its blossom end. Persian melons when ripe have a light green color under the net, the blossom ends begin to soften and the flesh has a tinge of orange.
