Answer: The only thing I could find remotely similar to your description is a "pickling melon" named Numame. The catalog description says its fruits resemble a large pale cucumber. The firm, thick flesh is used for "Oriental pickles or your favorite watermelonpickles". This variety is available from Nichols Garden Nursery. They may have more information on other possibilities. Their number is 541/928-9280.
