Santa Claus Melons are related to the honeydew and casaba. The flesh is very juicy and tastes somewhat like a honeydew.
Melons (Santa Claus)
Santa Claus Melons with more yellow in their rinds and that weigh at least five pounds are said to have the best flavor. The color of the characteristic stripes on its hard shell is a sign of this melon's ripeness. The brighter the yellow, the riper and sweeter it is.
