This is one of the easier varieties to grow, producing sizeable early fruits weighing up to 3kg. With fragrant, thick, extremely sweet and juicy flesh, it has a small seed cavity and light green flesh. The wonderful, vine-ripened flavour of this very sweet, juicy melon is almost wine-like. Best grown in the greenhouse in the UK but is also particularly suitable for cloche culture.
Sow seed on edge to prevent rotting. Sow two seeds 1.5cm (½in) deep from mid- to late April, in small pots a propagator or on a sunny windowsill at 18-21ºC (64-70ºF). Remove the weakest seedling after germination. When at the 2 leaf stage, transplant seedlings on into at least 10cm (4 inch) pots for a few weeks before potting on into larger containers or direct into the greenhouse border, or use 2 plants per growbag.
