Help identifying melon

20170714_175131.jpg
Purchased several melons over the past year. Saved seeds but didn't mark what they are. Planted some this spring and got this! I think it's realy pretty but I never bought anything like this. Any ideas? It's round and pleated.

Re: Help identifying melon

Unless someone recognizes it as an actual melon I'm unfamiliar with, I would suggest that the melon you bought was either 1) a hybrid so that the offspring seeds are some cross of its parentage; or 2) a result of open pollination by a random Cucurbitaceae family member, like a watermelon, maybe? Just my guesses.
