Sweet sunday melons

Who’d have thought we’d get sweet juicy melons from our Peckham garden? I don’t know what variety it is but it had light veining on the skin and a delicious fragrance. It has been growing all summer in the polytunnel so we’ll save seed ( shouldn’t have cross pollinated) to grow and enjoy again next year.
