Melon - Galia

Melon - Galia


The Galia is a type of melon similar to a cantaloupe, though larger, and with deep green flesh. Like any melon, they are sweet and aromatic, with a flavour more like a cantaloupe than a honeydew, although with a complexity of their own. Ripeness is measured not by softness at the stem but rather by colour and fragrance.
