Cucumis melo

An exceptional Persian Heirloom that was a standard in American gardens, but somehow fell out of favour and is now rarely available on the seed trade market. This melon with its exquisite green netted rind, its rich, juicy, sweet, yet firm flesh is reminiscent of days gone by, and its popularity deserves to be rekindled.

In water scarce SA, it is also good to know that this variety can tolerate drier climates.

Ready for harvest around 85 days.

Standard Packets contains approx. 15 seeds

Petite packet contains approx. 5 seeds
