Melon Tigger

Melon Tigger produces small fruits of about 1/2 kilogram in weight. The melon’s skin is semi-thick, smooth, and hard, displaying a vibrant mottled and variegated striping. You know they are ripe by the smell and with the colour changing to a bright orange, crimson, to golden yellow hue.

When cut open, the ivory flesh is firm, dense, and juicy with a crisp, succulent consistency. The flesh is very mild, subtly sweet, and somewhat muted. A quick variety to ripen which is useful in cool climates. Produced 4 to 6 fruits per plant.
