This melon is a cross between a honeydew melon and a cantaloupe, with the netted skin of a cantaloupe and the yellow-green flesh of a honeydew melon. Galia melons can be stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator, and will ripen after being picked. The Galia melon is slightly larger than a cantaloupe in size and more aromatic than either the cantaloupe or honeydew melon.
