This rare and recently recovered ancient Italian melon variety was historically grown in Lombardy and Emilio Romagna (in the area between Montova, Parma, and Reggio Emilia), and is starting seeing a comeback thanks to a handful of small biodiversity-focused seed companies in Europe. Lightly ribbed and speckled spherical fruits ripen from green to straw color on the outside with very juicy and sweet yellow/green flesh. Not one for shipping on account of its high water content, Moscatello is one to be treasured locally.
