A large, round melon that is a member of the gourd family, with a hard, netting-like textured surface that is light green to ivory in color. The orange-colored flesh is sweet and very juicy. To check for ripeness, depress the blossom end of the melon, opposite the stem end, to make sure it is not hard and yields slightly when depressed. Also, there should be a sweet aroma of the fruit that is detectable. This melon is also known as nutmeg, netted, rockmelon, or muskmelon.
