Grown in the high mountain valleys north of Kabul, Afghanistan, this delicious honeydew melon measures 8-inches long and is shaped like a football. The skin of the Afghan is netted and the flesh is green, crispy and sweet. (90 days)

Each packet contains approximately 25-50 seeds.

Planting Instructions:
Melons need fertile soil and abundant heat to reach perfection. Sow in place about two weeks after last frost. Plant seed about one inch deep, 12 inches apart, in rows 5 feet apart. May also plant in hills, 4 to 5 seeds per hill, with hills about 5 feet apart.

In short-season climates, grow transplants indoors, starting 1 week before last frost date and set out about 2 to 3 weeks after sowing; never let transplants become root-bound in their container.
