Melon Tigger (Limited stock this season)
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.
