Has anyone heard of an Israel Melon?

Palestine, TX

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.

I would try posting your question on the Beginner Gardening forum instead, more people will see it there.

They are called Israeli melons. Haogen is the more popular but there is also one called old Israeli

I used to live in Texas (Im native) and we always called them Israilie Melons.. I was online looking for seed and ran across your message.. I found this on Wikipedia regarding them... Whatever they're called, they're wonderful..

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%5Bcommon%5D=Cantaloupe%2C+Galia&searcher%5Bfamily%5D=&searcher%5Bgenus%5D=&searcher%5Bspecies%5D=&searcher%5Bcultivar%5D=&searcher%5Bhybridizer%5D=&searcher%5Bgrex%5D=&search_prefs%5Bblank_cultivar%5D=&search_prefs%5Bsort_by%5D=rating&images_prefs=both&Search=Search
