This early variety has small, cricket-ball-sized fruits of a pound or more, with a complex sweet, spicy flavour, green flesh, and a heavily netted skin. Amy Goldman, author of 'Melons for the Passionate Grower', says this variety 'may cause drooling' 65-80 days.
Sow direct when the soil is warm and all danger of frost is past. Sow the seeds in raised hills or rows 3 inches high. Thin to 3 plants per hill 3 feet apart, or 1 plant per foot in rows. For earlier fruit, seeds may be started indoors. Fruit may need supporting.
