What is a Piel de Sapo melon?

The Piel de Sapo melon, although not widely known in Australia, is the melon of choice in Spain. Piel de Sapo means “frog skin” in Spanish, and while the rough mottled rind of these melons closely resembles the amphibian they are named after, it has led some Australian growers to call them "Croc-melons".

How to grow a rockmelon

Would you rather plant your seed in the ground?

You will need a sunny spot in your yard with well-drained soil. At least two weeks before planting, prepare the soil by mixing in manure and fertiliser. Without preparation and time for the soil to mix with the fertiliser, your seedling may be burnt by the salt in the fertiliser. Two weeks after planting, you will also need to top up your soil with fertiliser. Follow the directions on the bottle. Also, keep an eye out for weeds as they may interfere with your plant.
