Kirkman x Torpeda F1 melon

This is from Kirkman melon seeds, but it seems to have been crossed with Torpeda, by some of its qualities. I wonder why it's not striped, though. I guess Kirkman's rind must be dominant, except for Torpeda's netting seems dominant.

Anyway, it wasn't as sweet as its parents. It was firm (not soft and juicy like Kirkman). The texture was like Torpeda, but the flesh color was like Kirkman.
