Melon, Afghan Honeydew
FREE SHIPPING in the contiguous 48 United States

Crisp and flavorful, this exotic honeydew melon (citrullus lanais) comes from the high mountain valleys of Afghanistan. It yields medium-sized, oval shaped fruits with creamy-green flesh that is spicy, sweet and exceptionally tasty. (90 days)

Each packet contains approximately 25-50 seeds.

Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Plant melons in a warm spot that gets plenty of sun. Make sure that the area is protected from strong winds and cool temperatures. Sow in place two weeks after the last frost and space 2-4 feet apart in rows 5-10 feet apart. May also be planted in hills, two per hill, with the hills spaced 2-3 feet apart. In short-season climates, start indoors one week before the last frost date.

Fruits are ready to pick when stems turn from green to brown and begin to dry. In addition, look for the underside — where the fruit rests on the ground — to turn from a greenish white to tan or yellow. Cut from vines with at least one inch of stem attached.
