The Piel de Sapo melon, although not widely known in Australia, is the melon of choice in Spain. Piel de Sapo means “frog skin” in Spanish, and while the rough mottled rind of these melons closely resembles the amphibian they are named after, it has led some Australian growers to call them "Croc-melons".
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 and refreshing sweet flesh that has to be tried to be believed.
