Melon, Persian

The Persian melon has a greenish “netted” rind similar to a cantaloupe’s, but may lose its greenish color as it ripens, as in this photo.  It is best to purchase vine ripened Persian melons, but they ripen well on the countertop.  When the rind yields to gentle pressure or develops slight depressions, the melon is ripe.  Persian melons also have a cantaloupe-like aroma when ripe, and are similar in flavor to a cantaloupe.  We could not find specific nutritional information for Persian melons.
