Default Melon question

I have seeds for Ha'Ogen and Old Original Israel melon....
They seem to be the same thing under a different name... has anyone grown both of them and can tell me the differences?

Hi Nathan, I haven't grown Old Original Israel but I have grown Ha'Ogen.

Ha'Ogen is a small melon with green flesh, very fragrant.

I live in the (cooler) east SF Bay Area so I was gratified to learn I could grow it here and get it to produce!

From what I have seen on the Web: Ha'Ogen is smaller (3-4 lbs.) with green flesh, Old Original Israel is larger (7-8 lbs.) with white flesh.
