(also Ogen melon)
Definition of Ogen in English:
A small melon with pale green flesh and an orange skin ribbed with green.
- The Ogen, named for the Israeli kibbutz where it was developed, has a yellow skin with green stripes rather than fissures, and green flesh.
- In 1992 I managed a fair crop of Ogen melons in my well-placed cold greenhouse.
1960s: from the name of a kibbutz in Israel.
