This Japanese pickling melon, known also as oshiro uri, has light green skin that turns almost white when mature. The melon grows to 12" long and looks like a fat cucumber. This variety thrives in cool areas. Especially ideal for pickling, these melons can also be stuffed or stir-fried with beef, pork, chicken or vegetables. Young fruit is tasty eaten raw as you would a cucumber. (70 day)
