The Ananas melon has an oval shape and on average weighs between 3 and 5 lbs (7-12 KG). Its exterior is covered in a yellow to tan skin with a sandy hued netting that becomes increasingly pronounced as the melon reaches its peak of ripeness. Depending upon variety, its interior flesh can vary from a creamy shade of white or green to pale orange in color. The flesh is juicy and crisp and surrounds a narrow seed cavity. When ripe and at room temperature the Ananas melon will have a sweet melon flavor and scent laced with nuances of pineapple.
