Long Melon(Opo Squash)

Opo squash has a lengthy, cylindrical-shape and is typically harvested when ten to fifteen inches in length. Its smooth skin varies from a light green to chartreuse and encases a creamy white flesh and petite seeds. When young the seeds are tender and edible but when the squash becomes more mature the seeds become hard and should be removed prior to consumption. Opo squash offers a mild flavor reminiscent to a blend of summer squash and cucumber with a firm yet tender to the bite texture.
