I would like help on the identification of this melon. It came to me in a strange manner. We have a local Asian grocery store - at the rear of the parking lot is a dumpster. As I waited for friends to return from shopping I noticed some very unusual leaves which looked different from our usual "ditch and alley" flora. Much to my chagrin I walked into the weeds and there was this beauty - it had delicate pink flesh I ever saw and you can see from the size its quite a monster. Ostensibly the melon missed the dumpster and propagated on its own. Does anyone know the variety or other cultural characteristics of how it's prepared.
