The flesh is green near the rind, orange in the middle. The green part is not only edible, but sweet.
Some think these melons have a taste reminiscent of butterscotch, hence the name.
They are very small, just 1 to 2 pounds (450 to 900g) each.
Each vine will yield up to 8 of the melons, requiring 75 days from seed.
The plant is a Cantaloupe hybrid. The seeds are often sold under various “Butterscotch Sweetie” names.
Allow one per person.
