What fruit is this?
I'm new to this forum... so here goes!
I've included a photo of something growing in my garden. I've planted Lebanese cucumbers (Mythas) in this area, but I have something growing which is sweet like a fruit.
There was one of these melons about a month ago, and it was twice this size. I thought it was a big Mytha, so I let it grow and rot on the vine because I was going to save the seeds. As it lay rot, and I went for the seeds, I noticed the interior meat was orange and smelled sweet, like a cantaloupe. It was rotten, so I didn't taste it, but this one I plan to eat.
The skin looks more like a honeydew, but the interior looks something between a cantaloupe and a Mytha.
This is an above ground bed that I've used for several years and never planted melons in that spot or near there.
Can someone tell this newbie what it is?
