Piel de Sapo (Santa Claus Melon)
Piel de Sapo is a reliably sweet melon with an attractive flavour
The Piel de Sapo is different in appearance both internally and externally to a rockmelon. They are green on the outside with creamy yellow flesh, similar to a honeydew but generally sweeter in taste.
When you cut a piel de sapo, don't cut too closely to the rind as that's where the melon isn't as sweet.
How should I store the melon and how long will it last?
Once you cut this melon up to share it’s not likely to last long! But Piel de Sapos do have a long shelf life and are best stored at a consistent 7-8 degrees celcius. The melon doesn't like going in and out of refrigeration as the skin can condensate, resulting in black spots.
Very rich in potassium which is good for your heart. Its main quality is the high concentration of vitamins A and C: just 200 grams of melon, in fact, contain 60 mg of vitamin C which is good to strengthen the immune system and protect the skin.
