This is a very productive cylindrical Carosello (C. melo) with emerald green hairless skin and dark markings along deep grooves. Flesh is an excellent flavor containing few seeds. It is a heirloom from Italy. The fruit is eaten like cucumbers and is very delicious.

The plant produces a early crop of cucumber-melons and does thrives in warm or hot climates.
