This melon was sold by Henry Field in the 60's as part of a red, white, and yellow Japanese melon collection. I grew all three of them, Ice box sized melons that grew and produced well. This past year I grew Cream of Saskatchewan. It appears to be the same melon. It is not exactly white, but very close.
