- A hybrid between the cantaloupe and casaba melon that is sweet and softer than many melons.
(Inodorus group) (110 days) Parents were the Casaba and Persian melon. A ripe Crenshaw is seductively spicy sweet with a yellowish skin and luscious salmon colored flesh. I cannot believe how sweet a melon of this large size can be. I don't enjoy the flavor of cantaloupes, but cannot get enough of this melon.
