- (Cucumis melo) Round to oval shaped melon with pale green skin, which is fuzzy on immature fruits. Its early fruits are used as a cucumber which has a mild sweet taste. Oy is sweeter and more crunchy than regular cucumbers, and never gets bitter. One of our family favorites! It is best when picked 2.5-3" long with rind still light green and slightly fuzzy.
