Melon is a general name. There are many types of melon worldwide. Like North American "cantaloupe" or “honeydew” which grows in California from August to October:)

Thanks. I live in South Africa, so will have to make the appetizer without the chickpeas... Love your website and am using many recipes for a Turkish dinner soon

You can get chickpeas anywhere in south africa. Canned chickpeas would be your best bet

These are not regular dried or canned chickpeas which are readily available,
but special roasted chickpeas called "Leblebi" in Turkish:)
