Piel De Sapo Melon



Price each


These melons are definitely my favourite of them all, they are the juiciest, sweetest and best tasting melon, they are known by so many names, Santa Claus Melon, Frog Melon because of the nice yellow and greens on the outside.  When translated from Spanish, Piel de Sapo means “frog skin” and the rough mottled rind of these melons closely resembles the amphibian they are named after. A Piel de Sapo melon originally came from Spain as you may guess from the name.  They are green on the outside with creamy yellow flesh, similar to a honeydew but generally sweeter in taste. Size wise these melon’s are around the same size as a Honeydew, if not bigger.


Once you cut this melon up it’s unlikely to last too long! However, these melon’s do have a good shelf life and are best stored in a fridge, though it is best not taken in and out of the fridge otherwise, the skin can condensate and black spots will begin to appear.  Melon preparation is like many others, disguard the internal seeds and best not cut too close to the rind (as there isn’t much flavour here). Although the Piel de Sapo is delicious on its own, its versatility allows it to be included in a range of meal occasions including for breakfast, as a snack, salads, appetizers, desserts and cheese platters paired with a crisp white wine.
