Hail falling on grass takes longer to melt than hail on concrete, why?

Earlier it was hailing where I live in California, the hails that had fallen on concrete floor in the backyard (and rained upon) have all melted very quickly. Wheres the hail that had fallen on the grass patch in the same backyard, remained intact for a long while (almost not melting at all).

Anybody knows why?
