Melon Mango (Cucumis melo)

  • Melon Mango (Cucumis melo): heirloom variety with exceptional characteristics. The small fruits are very fragrant.

    Put a few of them on a bowl and aromatize the whole room with its tropical aroma, very much like peaches and mangoes.

    Its pulp is juicy and sweet, it can be eaten raw like any other melon, but it is good for many other recipes, like jams; just let your imagination fly!

    The plant is rustic and resistant to water stress, and it does not require much care during the cultivation cycle. It prefers full sun exposure, which helps the abundant fruits to ripe.  Ready in 80 days.

    The origins of Chito (its original name) are not certain, but it is certainly one of the oldest cultivated melons.
