Cucumis melo var. Makuwa
Rare melon variety, considered to be native to Korea. While the classic yellow striped chamoe is seen as the quintessential summertime fruit, heirloom seed activists, particularly in Gyeonggi-do prefer this beautiful, green-fleshed apple-shaped variety. Very prolific plants produce 6-10 fruits. Flavor is reminiscent of honeydew, but with the crunchy texture loved by Koreans. Eat the skin, seeds, and pulp as well for added nutrition and texture.
