About This Variety

Cucumis melo
Seeds Per Packet: 30
Price Per Packet: $4.00
Days To Maturity: 120 days

A mild, sweet, juicy honeydew with pale green flesh and very dark green, slightly ribbed rind. First listed in American catalogues in the 1830s, but may go back further than that. Harvested in mid-October and stored at room temperature, it keeps extraordinarily well, easily into January, so it offers one response to the perennial localvore question “but what will I do for fresh fruit in winter?”!
