  • A variety of sweet melon, Cucumis melo, smaller than the cantaloupe or winter melon but variable in size and with fine reticulate markings (a raised network) on smooth or ribbed yellowish or green skins. The aromatic flesh is green to salmon orange. It was the common variety grown in UK hothouses. When ripe the skin at the stalk end will give slightly when pressed.
