A member of the muskmelon family this melon has a round cantaloupe-like shape and size with a grayish-green rind that covers a sweet orange colored, juicy flesh. As it matures, the rind begins to lose the grey coloring and is replaced by a warm yellowish tone. It is a fruit that is native to France and considered to be very flavorful and aromatic, often used as a dessert. 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 known as the French Breakfast or French melon.
