PIEL DE SAPO
The reason vast areas of La Mancha are dedicated to growing this variety is its incredible sweet taste which many people think resembles a water melon. The white flesh itself is similar to a honeydew with just a hint of gold around the seed cavity. The name translates as 'Toad Skin' and the skin of this Spanish-style melon does indeed resemble this amphibian with its mottled green skin with flecks of yellow and wrinkles when ripe, but it is wonderful to eat!.
