per melon

The Piel de Sapo melon is the melon of choice in Spain. Piel de Sapo means “frog skin” in Spanish,  the rough mottled rind of these melons closely resembles the amphibian they are named after.

The melon is shaped like an oval, similar to a football. The thick rind means that Piel de Sapos possess excellent shelf life and transportability and its tough exterior hides a dense, juicy sweet flesh.
