I have seeds for what is called an Israel Melon. They grow well in Central Texas. The melons resemble a cantalope with a smooth hull and are very sweet. I do not know the scientific name or species.

Galias originated in Israel, but are always marketed as Galia melons. Israeli melons are alternate name for the open pollinated Haogen and Old Israeli varieties. All Galia's are F1 hybrids beginning with the original "Galia". Almost all of them are netted. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/adv_search.php?searcher[common]=Cantaloupe, Galia&searcher[family]=&searcher[genus]=&searcher[species]=&searcher[cultivar]=&searcher[hybridizer]=&searcher[grex]=&search_prefs[blank_cultivar]=&search_prefs[sort_by]=rating&images_prefs=both&Search=Search
