The earliest-ripening Eastern-type cantaloupe. Developed for far northern, coastal, and mountain climates. Gardeners in these difficult, cool-weather areas often grow their first ripe melons ever using this variety. The oblong, orange-fleshed, sweet-flavored fruits have light netting and average about 3 pounds. Released in 1966 by the late Elwyn Meader, plant breeder at the University of New Hampshire.
